Personality Traits and Temperament
The Lappie, as he's nicknamed, is a friendly, keen, fearless, robust, courageous, and intelligent dog. Some describe him as a noisy dog. As he retains strong herding instincts, he has a tendency to bark at unfamiliar things. He can be noisy when working, however, when interacting with people, he is friendly and quite submissive. While herding reindeer, barking helps him prove his identity, otherwise it would have been difficult to distinguish him from wolves.
