|They are spitzes, and they do show that through being more willful and independent. Like Cardis, they are territorial, but probably come up lower on the scale re strange dogs. Rather work driven! When you are coupling that arouseable tendency (function) with the more independent streak, probably the most demanding in terms of reliable off lead, but that's comparative to the other two. Still quite trainable.
What do you expect from the dog?
Pembrokes can be rather exhausting (I think, BOL!) for their enthusiasm of all things, but they are true training junkies. So it's a coin with one side negative (maybe) and the other positive. Almost drunk for life, but if you want to put the time in this is a dog capable of ridiculous precision. They are up for whatever you want to do, so if you had wide plans, great dog.
Cardigans are the closest you will get to a GSD. They are the steadiest of these. They also have the most opinion, though, and probably the most quirk factor. But a good one is steady and dependable, and while all these bark, they bark the least.
Vallhunds are probably the most raw work, and by that I mean Pembrokes are so busy that they'll create their own job if you don't give them one....they are enthusiastic about all things life. Vallhunds a little more serious and responsible.
Helpful, I hope!
