This is a breed with speed, brilliance, and a lot of love to give. They are devoted to their human Pack, but require extensive activity and daily exercise to remain at their best. In the absence of a “job” any stray humans sitting around the house will become that job. They are not stubborn in a way that prohibits easy training, but be aware that they have a will, and aren’t afraid to assert it.
