Coat & Grooming: Does require some grooming. They have a double coat and will shed their winter coats but will hold the coat, unlike a single coated dog such as a lab for example. With regular brushing, the shedding can be minimal. There is more shedding in spring and fall so more brushing is required.
Health Concerns: Can carry the MDR1 gene. They can have a sensitivity to certain drugs. Eyes should also be tested for Hereditary Cataracts
