Interestingly enough, the thick coats of Karelian Bear Dogs don't impede their ability to move and hunt at all as this particular breed of dog has a pretty good reputation for being a reliable hunting partner. Karelian Bear Dogs tend to like all sorts of activities, from agility training to dog soccer, which we'll discuss below.
