Norwegian Elkhound dog reviews

norwegian elkhound dog reviews

The Norwegian Elkhound is one of the ancient Northern Spitz-type breed of dog. It has a thick, smooth-lying coat consisting of straight outer hairs and a wooly undercoat. It needs daily exercise, lest it become frustrated or even destructive. The Norwegian Elkhound is friendly with strangers but may quarrel with strange dogs. Elkhounds are famously fine companions and intelligent watchdogs. These strong, confident dogs are truly sensitive souls, with a dash of houndy independence.
