He may try to herd children, guests, or ducks by nipping at their ankles or barking at them due to his natural herding instinct
He's good with children if raised with them
He doesn't like to be left alone for long periods of time; he likes to be with someone all the time
He's quite vocal and barks quite often
He will warn you when a person is at the door or on your property
He loves to run around in open space
He's one of the easiest of all breeds to train because he learns so quickly. (There's only a few of these super-fast learning breeds--and he's one of them!)
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!).
