When you see small dog, you thing about how cudly and cute it is. But did you know, that some small breeds are actually good watchdogs? Some of them will alert you everytime they hear strange noise in your home.
For example Rat Terrier is great watchdog. We can say, that all terriers are good watchdogs, because all of them like barking. Rat terrier is no exception and makes keen watchdog. They are also very energetic, playfull, easy to groom, great with other animals in your family and they normally live long happy life.
Boston Terriers is on the second place, because this is very very good watchdog. It is because, that unlike other terriers, boston terriers normally dont bark that much.

Finland is northern and pretty cold country. That is why most of the dogs that were developed in this country are pretty tough breeds. Sadly, some of them are already extinct. There are 8 Finnish dog breeds: Finnish Spitz, Finnish Lapphund, Karelian Bear Dog, Karelo – Finnish Laika, Finnish Hound, Lapponian Herder, Tamaskan and Seskar Seal Dog.
My favourite breed is Finnish Spitz, which is kinda popular all around the world and not only in Scandinavia. It is also known as Finnish Barking Birddog or Finkie, this is national dog of Finland. They are known for barking a lot. That is because, they were originally bred to hunt, and then bark, when they found something. Since in Finland, they are still used for hunting, in the rest of the world, they are mainly companion dogs. Finnish Spitz is very people oriented and he hates to be alone, because of his sensitive nature. This fox like looking dog enjoys a lot of exercise – especially in snow. Without a lot of exercise he will become bored and destructive. As i said earlier, they bark a lot, but that is not only sound they are doing. Finnish Spitz is very talkative breed, he can croon, purr and yodel.
