Teddy has a wonderful energy with people. The second he meets a new person his tail starts wagging and butt wiggles uncontrollably. He is great with kids. We are condo people so he needs long walks and some time off leash to dart around. If not there is a wild surge of energy on cue just before bed. Training is difficult and slow going. High value food is the only way to break fixations with him. He has also shown a lot of separation anxiety. Barking is a problem due to the sheer volume the little hound dog can reach. That being said he is absolutely adorable and extremely affectionate. He gets along great with older dogs and with other small dogs. I think Basschunds like Teddy would thrive in a multiple dog household.
