Find Your Schipperke Puppy Now!
With his profuse black coat, sturdy body, foxlike expression and natural ratting skills, there's a lot of attitude packed into the small stature of the Schipperke. These highly energetic, intense dogs thrive on work and physical activity, which is why they do so well in competition, including agility and obedience. A natural watchdog tendency may make them wary of strangers, but they also have a joyful, mischievous streak, which can make them both endearing and a bit of a handful, so obedience classes are a good idea for your Schipperke puppy.
