This is an affectionate, active, and intelligent dog which is loyal to its own family, and is eager to learn, equable, vigilant, has a good nose, and can be dominant.
The shoulder-height is 63 â 66cm (24 Â½ - 26 in) for dogs and 60 â 63cm (23 Â½ -24 Â½ 2in) for bitches.
This breed usually gets along well with other dogs and household animals. They are normally patient with children. They are friendly with those they know but can be vigilant if necessary. They are gentle-natured and equable, intelligent and eager to learn and have a good scenting nose.
The long-haired coat is close and dense, with a dense undercoat. The colour are brown roan, brown with or without white, and white with a brown head and brown markings. A black roan is also permissible.
The hair of the coat should be as possible but must not look untidy. The hairs need to be hand-plucked occasionally â how often depends on the coat. Between such plucking sessions, brush thoroughly about once per week. This is a good chance to check the ear passages to ensure they clean.
These dogs can learn and want to, making their training much easier. They make an ideal choice for those without much experience.
