Bailey is very loyal listens very well we have had her since she was 8 weeks old but is not starting to act up because my son is to busy with school and activities now that he doesn't have a lot of time for her anymore ! She is excellent with small kids and big kids but she needs one on one attention always off leash in house - will follow the one she chooses everywhere ! Is trained to stay on deck no matter what till I say! Travels well!
