In Finland love dogs
Life with a dog for residents of the country, which from generation to generation engaged in hunt, was so organically connected with the whole way of life that a person did not imagine his life without a dog. Genetically, it remained from Finns today, although the lifestyle is largely different.
Most of all among pets in Finnish families hold dogs, each fifth family has a dog – this is more than a million dogs in a small country. All other animals: cats, pigs, turtles, birds do not have such a huge popularity as dogs.
Everyone who visited Finland saw that there were no street dogs here, like street cats.
Dogs in Finland are the same calm and educated as their owners. In a multi-storey residential building, where there is almost every family there is a dog, you will never hear Lai (of course, there are exceptional cases, but this is not a typical phenomenon).
In Helsinki and some other cities, you can carry dogs for free in any of the types of transport. International Train "Sibelius" There are special coupe, where they can comfortably accommodate dog owners with their pets. In some cities, you need to pay for travel – 50% of the cost of a regular ticket. Laws are established by the city authorities, there is a special public service where issues related to dog owners are being solved, the rules of residence in large residential buildings and T.D. Most issues are solved by municipal institutions: walking sites, cleaning for dogs.
Walking dogs – it gives her to run freely, because to walk, holding on a leash with all legitimate rules, can be everywhere. The owners of the dogs themselves are cleaned by the dog – therefore everywhere purely. In places, walking in Helsinki, for example, hang special packages that you can take advantage of.
The dog is truly a friend and take care of her. Well delivered in Finland and veterinary service.
In the country only annually registered up to 50 thousand thoroughbred dogs. Finnish club of thoroughbred dogs was organized back in 1889 and has a decent story. About 200 thousand dogs take part in exhibitions every year. Large exhibitions sometimes have up to 7,000 participants.
All animals in Finland must be registered – this is the law. There is a good shelter service for animals, and information that "The dog is waiting for a good house", Including on special sites on the Internet. Then follows tracking about a new place and how pets live there.
Finnish tourists in bewilderment when they see the packs of dogs in the cities and towns of Russia. Such an attitude towards animals does not fit in consciousness. In Finland, rent in the shelter for the day, week, month. If the owner, for some reason, can not be at home. Leaning, he is calm for his pet, there will do everything – from vaccinations to a complete medical examination of the animal at the request of the owner. This, of course, is expensive, but the owners of their favorite animals do not regret them. Dog content is a family "in a penny". Specialized stores for animals offer all modern funds that facilitate care for them. Animals in Finland are very well-groomed. Animal protection society in Finland was founded 130 years ago and has a tremendous experience. If a complaint about the poor animal content is received, the perpetrator may threaten a major fine.
Of course, in Finland, the animal may be lost and not to find his master, but he finds a special service and rents in the near shelter. Private shelters are also very many, which are also under state control.

In Finland in 1880, Helsinki hunters, hunting in northern remote forests, accidentally saw dogs, similar to foxes, small in size, with excellent hunting capabilities.
