My Finnish Spitz

By

Massachusetts, United States

Posted August 9, 2014

I have owned two dogs over my life (22yo), both of them Finnish Spitz dogs.
Pros: -Extremely loyal, friendly, and calm
-Can be trained to be an excellent watch dog
-Always very excited to see you
-Manageable size, not a large dog but not a small dog
-Beautiful and luxurious coat, color
-good with kids

Cons:
-Sheds a lot, need time to dedicate to grooming
-Bark is very loud and piercing (they were bred to hunt birds and their bark is loud to stun the bird so the hunter could approach it)
-Not always great with other small pets as they were bred to hunt. Prey drive can be high.
