Eurasier Activity Requirements

The Eurasier is a fairly new breed of dog that was developed in Germany. They are a muscular, compact, and agile little dog that is known to have an excellent sense of humor. They are friendly, playful, and loyal. Eurasiers are intelligent dogs that require regular mental stimulation. This can come from obedience training, puzzle toys, or simply spending time with their people. They do not need a lot of exercise and are generally happy with a midday break. While they generally do well in homes with yards, they do not require as much space as some larger breeds. A home with a small yard or apartment with a patio may be an ideal match for an Eurasier.
