Meet our reindeer dog
Lapland is known for reindeer as well as its reindeer shepherd dogs. The Reindeer Lake Resort farm has currently one reindeer shepherd Rico, a Lapponian herder. Lapland reindeer dogs have been used by herders for centuries as a tool for moving, assembling and separating reindeer herds, as well as defending the herd from wolves and other threats.
