If I've learned anything about this breed during my time of owning one is that they love to be by there people. They are full of energy, they are loyal, and they can pick stuff up pretty easy. I can tell when mine gets bored because she kinda wanders around like she is lost. Obedience class is a good way to start the process of learning, socialization, and bonding. Once you figure out what the dog needs you'll be so happy and so will the dog.
