We're waiting on Schipperke pups to be born and plan to get one for our daughter's 10 birthday. We are also boat owners and can't wait to be able to go to the lake with our new dog. Any advice on Schipps is greatly appreciated.
Lucky, schipperkes are sooo cute. Anyways, they r curiuos, brave, and loyal. They only need minimal grooming. they adapt well to urban living, but they still need lots of excercise and they are excellent watch dogs. Need anymore info?
Well, they have a medium leangth double coat, so i think they shed pretty often. As for liking water, ummm..... i'm not sure. all dogs have diffrent likes. (i had a cat who liked dunking his head in a water bowl on hot days!)
I have a schipperke that loves the water. She gets into things if she gets bored so make sure you exercise or walk the dog often. They're very loyal and love to play. They're smart and very curious - I finally gave up and put child safety locks on my kitchen cabinets even though I have no kids!
