Welcome to Finland's biggest dog event!


Fors Jari


I’m from a family that always had hunting dogs, Finnish Hounds and Finnish Spitz. When I was 15 and started hunting alone, I was companied by Finnish Hound Jallu, a famous dog during that time. Thanks to this dog, I lost my heart to Finnish Hounds and started breeding them together with my wife in 1986 under prefix “Alapörkän”. I became a judge for Finnish Hounds in 1993 and today, I’m qualified for all breeds from group 6 as well as for most breeds from group 5 and 7. I’m also qualified to judge Hovawarts from group 2.
