Even though it is a breed of great energy, there is nothing that likes him more than climbing on a sofa or a bed next to its owner and hugging him. Another thing is, they get excited when it needs to prepare for a trip, because he loves to ride in a car. It should be taught to ride inside his cage, as it is the safest way to travel that dogs have.
