Speagles are a happy, loyal and sociable breed. The Speagle is an intelligent dog and loves to be part of the action. They are a very affectionate, outgoing and playful breed, making them great for families with children and they generally get along well with other dogs, given they have been well socialised as a puppy.
It is important to start training at a young age and to be firm and consistent, rewarding them with treats for good behaviour. They are easy going and will be happy to participate in whatever you are doing, whether its playing fetch in the back yard or curling up to watch a movie - whatever love you give them, they will give it back two-fold!
Speagle Health Issues
Ear Infections: Dogs have a vertical ear canal (unlike humans which are horizontal) so it is easy for moisture and debris to be retained within the ear canal, causing irritation. It is seen most in floppy eared breeds, so it is important that ears be dried properly after a bath or swim.
Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA): A group of retinal degeneration diseases that worsens over time and can lead to impaired vision or even blindness.
Intervertebral Disk Disease: Abnormality in the cartilaginous disks that provide cushioning between the vertebra. This is a condition that can be aggravated if your dog is overweight.
