Personality and Behavior
He's independent-natured and aloof; he doesn't need constant attention and cuddles to stay happy
He prefers to do his own thing
He bonds tightly with his master and he's more of a one-man dog than a family-dog
He's extremely protective of his home and family and is one of the best guard dog breeds!
He isn't overly energetic
He's one of the most difficult breeds to train. You will need lots of patience as he is one of the slowest to learn obedience commands.
He sheds profusely! You will find a lot of hair in your home - stuck to your couch, carpets and clothes - and to just about everything else. You will be vacuuming regularly.
Grooming / Maintenance
His medium-length coat only needs to be brushed occasionally. However, because it sheds profusely you may find yourself brushing it a couple of times a week, or even daily, to reduce the hair in your home (what you remove with a brush doesn't end up on the couch!).
