Their superior personality, even disposition and small size make them an ideal, easy-to-live-with pet, although they may be wary of strangers. Consistency in the home environment is extremely important, as is consistency in training, house training, and socialization. Lundehund is very sensitive and can develop trust issues with an owner who tries to trick him into doing things - you can only fool a Lundehund once. They are incredibly clever and fun-loving, making them delightful and sometimes challenging.
