"If the Border Collie is the CEO of the herding group, The Shaggy Dog Raconteurs are the comic relief. They thrive on affection, but need more than that: they need a job. Plan on spending plenty of time being entertained and exercised by these engaging dogs, who charm everyone they meet with their shaggy appearance and goofy grins."
"People who live with a Shaggy Dog Raconteur describe them as comical, smart and athletic. They are often described as having a human-like gaze — one that says “I love you.”
"These active dogs tend to have lots of stamina. Once you get the go-ahead from your veterinarian, these shaggy dogs may be the ideal companion for jogging, hiking or running alongside your bicycle! Many love to swim and can hardly be dragged out of the water. At a minimum, The Shaggy Dog Raconteurs need several brisk walks daily. They do have an "off switch", though, and will lie quietly in the house once they're back from their outing."
"Are The Shaggy Dog Raconteurs perfect? No breed is. They can be diggers and may be destructive if they are bored. But if you, as the audience, are active and loving, with a strong sense of humour, they could be the perfect choice for a cracking night of live music and merriment!"
