Temperament: Happy and outgoing. Independent and a little stubborn, not easily agitated yet willing to please with firm handling.
Care: The coat needs weekly brushing and occasional tidying of straggling hairs.
Training: energetic and independent but they are not naturally obedient. They must be taught to know who is top dog in their family situation. They require consistent training and socialisation, especially throughout adolescence. They do need a secure garden as they will be off if they get the scent of small game. They are not a breed for the faint hearted, owners will need patience and tolerance.
