|Have never had one (in the 17+ years I've been in the breed) be hard to house train, but then again, I don't find them hard to train; most people think they are stubborn. Honestly, it is just a matter of finding what motivates them. Even then you have to keep in mind that once the nose hits the ground, the ears tend to turn off. It's the nature of the beast.
They do shed alot. Daily brushing does help. Doggy smell will depend on how much time they stay outside. I've noticed that dogs that are kept outside for long periods of time tend to reek more than those who aren't. A good deodorizing shampoo and a regular bathing schedule helps with that, but if you are getting a pup, then it shouldn't be an issue. Also, it isn't like they have a smell/reek that is any different than other breeds. A stinky dog is a stinky dog.
