Love this breed! Extremely smart making house breaking and general obedience training easy. Heavy shedder so twice weekly brushing is a must, but daily brushing would cut down on the amount of hair left of your floors. A very proud and stoic dog. Terrific watch/guard dog, very good with family and people she knows, cautious with those she is not familiar with. Have found Sathira to do best with people if they don't rush in to pet her. She needs time to warm up to strangers. Incredibly strong dog! Has no problem with other dogs when off leash, however, has dominance issues when on leash.
Needs an owner who is the clear pack leader.
