meet theRussian Tsvetnaya Bolonka


Training &Temperament

Spirited yet easy-going and sociable, Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka are great with children. Although they are quick to alert, they will not be a constant barker with early training on appropriate behavior. They are independent for a Toy dog and require early socialization with people. Bolonki get along well with dogs and other animals. Very clever and smart, they do well in formal training such as obedience, rally, tracking and agility when trained with a firm but gentle hand.
