I am Mr Esa Ruotsalainen and live in southern Finland with my family and dogs. I am very active both in judging and breeding dogs. I became an authorized judge in 2010 and have since been appointed to over 120 shows in 10 different European countries. Spitz breeds are very close to my heart and I am involved in training both breeders and new judges for them in several breed clubs so practically all of my weekends are spent with canine activities.
I have grown up with hunting Spitz breeds which we had at my childhood home. Later after moving to the city I acquired German Spitz Klein and had my first litter in 1997. Together with my wife we breed German Spitz Klein and Mittel, Pomeranian and Finnish Lapphund under Tirhan & Tempore prefixes.
The Finnish Kennel Club awards Vuolasvirta Prize for distinguished breeders and we have received it 4 different times. We also love dog shows and have gained over 120 International Champion titles to dogs bred or owned by us. Though, lately I've been more focused on judging.
