Appenzellers are active dogs, meaning only a match for active people with a good understanding of dogs and positive style of dogtraining.
Appenzellers are not a first time dog owners. Puppy classes and and 2 levels of obedience training are a must. Lots of socializing with people, children and other dogs and animals are very importent to raise a happy and confident appenzeller. Appenzellers can be barky so to speek of: The happyness is in their voice if they are exsited they bark alot if not learned from puppytime that to much barking is not excepted they can be come very barky dogs but barking has as well to do with the dog feeling he is the boss.
Appenzellers are a great match to people and families who love to do activities outside and are willing to have their appenzeller being a part of their family. in just any activity, gardening, hanging laundry outside, gardening or hiking, running or dog sports like agility or rally -O, Obedience trails.
Appenzellers are active dogs who deserve to have an active live with his family!!
