These calm, playful dogs are intelligent, quiet and well-behaved, and are also good with people, children, and other pets.
These extremely intelligent canines can pick up training easily, provided the training is firm and consistently patient, including early socialization, while still a puppy. Also get them adapted to get used to be groomed by giving them initial body contacts to show affection and reassurance so that the puppy is not frightened and understand what the process is all about. Send them to a kindergarten class if possible, which should be more effective to make them refined and well-behaved and help them gel well with children and other pets.
