It was easy to teach it as a puppy to do it's thing outside the house. The sitting, lying down, raising it's paw to greet etc. was also very easy. It became difficult to train it amongst other dogs, because it was very excited around other animals, cats or dogs. When it was a "teenager" it got much better socially around other animals, and even better as it grew older. Now as a 14 year OLD :) it still has the same spark as when it was young, but of course is a lot slower. This dog needs A LOT of exercise, at least an hour of running each day or else it could become agile and whine until it got out of the house. This is NOT an animal for a family with young children to keep as a pet for the children, it definitely needs its exercise and needs a steadfast owner/keeper to make commands, otherwise it pretends not to hear or simply ignores it. Never had any trouble with behaviour, it's a true friend indeed and needs love like other animals. Would not recommend to punish it in any way physically, but in my mind that goes for all living things.
