Keeshond


Keeshond The Keeshond breed is a uniquely Dutch breed of dog with a loud, distinctive bark honed by generations of service as a guard dog on barges. But though still a bit territorial, Keeshonden tend to be very affectionate toward their families and get along well with others. The Keeshond's Behavior Source: Wikipedia. Recommended for: pet The Keeshond dog breed tends to be quite playful and a good jumper, agile, and good at obedience exercises. They have even been used as guide dogs. Keeshonden are also said to love children and get along well with other dogs. Yet they also have a very loud bark, and the breed has been developed for centuries as a watchdog, making them tend to be both alert toward strangers and territorial. Remember that breed only provides a general clue as to any individual dog's actual behavior. Make sure to get to know dogs well before bringing them into your home.
