Verna was a very special girl! My thoughts are with her owner Pilvi & family and thank you so much for giving Verna the perfect and loving setter life!


We had a lovely Nattaset ”little christmas and fun day” in Sudenkuoppa dog park yesterday.
It wasn’t easy to get sharp and good pictures – or see the dogs at all because of the snow and lack of daylight. But as you can see we all had great fun! Thank you all for the lovely day!


Nattaset Lady of Leisure ”Heili” 9 months (”Miss Long Legs” 😉) today at her very first official ch show in Kouvola. The judge Juha Putkonen didn’t appreciate her very highly… she got ”very good” and was 2nd (from two bitches) in junior class. She was nicely handled by Marika.

Thank you so much for thinking so highly of our crazy dogs and understanding that the young Setters can be very wild and stubborn. 😉 Thank you all the Nattaset team and huge congratulations! You made my day and it was worth of driving all the 650 kms!

The last night as a catsitter in summer house in Savonlinna. It has been raining A LOT during the last 8 days 🌧🌧 but today we had a little bit sunshine too!⛅️🌦


Nattaset Unforgettable Spring 072023
WHAT!!!??? A/A🤩🤩 I am over the moon! Pönni has been x-rayed yesterday at Anjalan Eläinlääkäriasema and today the hip and elbow pictures were scored by our kennel club. I couldn’t believe when I saw the results – hips A/A and elbows 0/0, the best you can get!!!🤩
In Finland is it not that usual that your Setter get A hips (for example in Poland all Setters seem to get A…. so the scoring system is very different). My previous A/A were born in 2017 or 2015. Thank you so much Hannu Pajulahti and Marianne for the great pictures and service!
