An excellent children's companion,
lively, intelligent, very alert, affectionate, loyal,
friendly, and generally outgoing. The Keeshond loves
everyone and needs to be part of the family activities.
They are generally good with other pets, although
some individuals are reserved or timid, and should
be socialized extensively as puppies. They like
to bark and are good watchdogs because of its notable
gift for warning of danger.
Will be okay in an apartment although
they should at least have an average-sized yard.
Keeshonden prefer cool climates; they cannot withstand
the heat well due to their thick coats.
This breed needs to be taken on
a daily walk and a good run in a safe, open field
each day. This breed is fairly active indoors. When
a Keeshond spins in circles it is a sign he needs
more stimulating exercise. The Keeshond is a very
bright dog as evidenced by its level of achievement
in obedience work. It needs patient, consistent
training, devoid of harsh punishments.
Being an intelligent dog, most
problems with Keeshonden stem from the dog inventing
its own activities (often destructive ones, like
digging and chewing).
Daily brushing of the long coat
with a stiff bristle brush is important to maintain
the coat and ward off doggy odor. Brush with the
grain first, then lift the hair with a comb, against
the grain, lay it back in place. Bathe or dry shampoo
only when necessary, generally once or twice a year.
The dense undercoat is shed heavily twice a year
in spring and fall. During the "blow,"
a Keeshond should be groomed once or twice a week
to facilitate rapid removal of the dead undercoat.
Keeshonden are prone to hip dysplasia,
luxating patellas (trick knee), epilepsy, Cushing's
disease, hyperparathyroidism, and hypothyroidism.
Von Willebrand's disease has been known in Keeshonden
but is not common. Keeshonden are a prime risk for
bloat. They can also get colds and gain weight if
not taken care of properly.
