From Dog Breed Info – An excellent children’s companion, active, intelligent, very keen and outgoing, Keeshonden are full of personality. They can be trained to perform. Affectionate and friendly, the Keeshond loves everyone and needs to be part of the family activities. This breed is a real character that is quick to learn if its owners are consistent. It should be trained using gentle, but firm, calm leadership. It is generally good with other pets. The Keeshond is a compact little animal with a strong resemblance to its ancestor, the Samoyed.
Given that the Keeshond has an arctic origin it’s been know as a “dog of the people.” Do any of you out there own a Keeshond. Sometimes they’re better known as a Wolfspitz or a Kees. Tell us about your experience with your dog. Also if you have any pictures, videos or stories to share we’d love to get them up here on the website. In the meantime we’ve collected a number of pictures of Keeshond dogs and puppies. Enjoy!
