Country of Origin:
Small dog breeds
This breed is boisterous, loyal to its handler and family, vigilant, not very easily led astray by bribes, intelligent and can bark a lot.
Non-sporting dog breeds
The ideal shoulder-height is 32cm (12 Â½ in) but heights of 29-36cm (11 Â½ -14 Â½ in) are acceptable.
These dogs get on well with their own kind and with children. Let them make acquaintance with cats early in their lives. Strangers will always be announced by barking.
The dog has a thick undercoat with longer erect covering hair. The Smaller Keeshond can be plain white, black, brown, orange or wolf-grey.
During moulting, it will be necessary to groom regularly with a coarse comb and with a brush to remove dead hairs.
At other times this must not be done too often to avoid damaging the undercoat.
The Smaller Keeshond quickly grasps what is intended. This makes its training fairly easy. When your dog proves to be one of those that likes to bark, it is advisable to train it not to.
