These are easy-going dogs and they are wonderful for novice and first time dog owners.

These dogs are very friendly towards strangers, kids and other dogs. They do not shed very much and are easy to groom. These dogs are very intelligent and take well to training. They are a high energy dog breed so they do require a bit of exercise.
