Their compatibility with children as well as with strangers is excellent making it more socialized, but careful supervision should be there when it comes to children. They are even comfortable with other dogs and pets and stay quiet usually with minimum barking when they see any stranger entering their territory. However, they will alert the family members if they sense danger.

They are even suitable for an apartment life if they get enough space to play and run. As it inherits the quality of hunting, take them to dog parks or for leash walks to fulfill their demands.
