Ideal Environment

This designer dog will do well in an apartment or home with a fenced yard. He does require some exercise, so regular walks will be needed, especially if he is an apartment dweller. He may bark a bit, but not obsessively. Give him plenty of toys to stimulate his mind. He will make a great family pet.

Dog Training!

If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of Adam will do whatever it takes to help you whip your dog into shape. I've used them to help with my Great Dane as well as help friends train their dogs. It's the first place I go to help answer users Questions. Many training issues are too extensive to answer in this forum, which is why I refer a lot of the load to his site. Update: I've been using and recommending DogProblems for three years now. I, as well as my users, value the techniques we've learned. I get weekly emails from users who have become better owners from the information they received.
