Björn von Rosen is credited as the man behind the registration of the Swedish Vallhund in its native country, after discovering the breed in the early 1940’s. He traveled around the county of Västergötland, especially in and around the town of Vara, cataloging a small population of homogenous dogs. His colleague Karl-Gustaf Zettersten, a school principal, headed the subsequent breeding program, successfully producing an even type while retaining the herding instinct.

The Swedish Vallhund is felt to be one of the authentic Swedish breeds, although there is a possible relationship with the Welsh Corgi, as the two breeds are very similar in morphological terms.
