The Eurasier was entered into the FSS program in 2008.  It is a spitz breed of dog, calm and even-tempered. Reserved toward strangers the remain watchful and alert without being timid or aggressive. Eurasiers form a strong link to their families and needs constant close contact with the family.  They are extremely sensitive to harsh words or discipline and respond best to soft reprimand, a fact well remembered during training.  Training should always be done through family members, not through strangers or handlers.  They rarely bark without good reason.  Don’t restrict the dog to a yard, kennel, crate, or chained up as they would pine and become depressed.  Their sole purpose in life is to be a family pet.
