They are affectionate, happy, daring and courageous and make excellent companions who get along well with other dogs, children over ten years old and cats if they are raised with them, but can hurt small pets like hamsters because they are bred to hunt vermin. Dogs should be walked daily and brushed regularly as they do not bite. They can make good watchdogs but can continue to bark, which is why it is essential to train them properly.
