What are Japanese Spitz like?
This loyal friend plays well with children, especially because they like to run and play outside. Perfect for coaxing a shy child to mix and mingle with other children. Japanese Spitz crave human attention and want to be included in family activities. This is not a breed to be content sitting by themselves.
Japanese Spitz would do well with early puppy training. They are independent and can be a bit dominant at times. But early training will help a great deal with this. They do bark when a stranger comes near, so that makes them a good watchdog. But if they are introduced to the stranger properly, they’ll warm right up. Japanese Spitz are filled with energetic and active, so be sure to take them for a long walk everyday. As long as he gets the exercises he needs, he’ll be happy living in an apartment or in a house with very little outdoor space. You can read more about Japanese Spitz here.
