theHistory

Training &Temperament

His medium size makes him suitable for apartments or the farm. While affectionate and loving toward their family and children, PONs may be suspicious of strangers. Training should start early, as the PON is independent and can be stubborn. Every new PON owner should establish puppy rules and everyone must adhere to them. The PON will find a weak link if there is one. Early adolescence can be rough. Just like a human teenager, a PON will test you. Training must never end because a PON’s ability to outsmart you never ends.
