The Norwegian Buhund is a natural herder and guardian. He's a wonderful family companion, especially affectionate with children. Smart and energetic, he's as happy to join you in vigorous outdoor activities as he is to snooze with you at day's end. Your Norwegian Buhund puppy is very trainable; start early with obedience training. The breed is so perceptive and versatile they've been used as service dogs for the hearing impaired. They're delightful pets for people who prize their energy, smarts and affectionate nature.
