A versatile dog, as a companion, or working dog. Working as a watchdog, blind leader, herding dog or guardian, whichever the circumstances may demand. A loyal dog, they love to please and be with you. Be with you I mean follow you around from room to room.
Dogs I have owned and bred have achieved many titles including, obedience, comformation, tracking, search and rescue, most are just someone's best friend and protector. This is a breed that needs exercise and a job to do. Being a double coated dog they shed a lot, if you are not ready for this, than this is not the breed for you. I have been owned by this breed for over 25 years and still love watching them discover new things, their willingness to learn....
