Japanese Spitz’s character traits, strengths and weaknesses.

Japanese Spitz loves barking, is fully aware of the surroundings, and is an excellent guard dog. Japanese Spitz’ Personality Habits need to be consciously regulated and trained by their owners when they are young. They train them not to use their paws to scratch and damage the objects at home, and train them to pay attention to hygiene, love cleaning, and develop good habits of regular bowel movements.

Japanese Spitz has the habit of identifying a master, and it is best not to change to a new master halfway, otherwise, they will not listen to the command of the new master for a long period of time.

Japanese Spitz has a knee joint disease called “ectopic kneecap” or “knee dislocation”.

This symptom is more common in small dogs. The reason is that the leg bones are narrow. Although some dogs with joint disease do not suffer much pain, if it is severe, surgery is required. The owner should be careful not to allow the dog to jump too much, climb stairs, or do very tiring exercises. Likewise, don’t let the dogs carry too much weight.

Eye problems

Japanese silver fox dogs generally have tear marks, which are caused by tears that do not enter the tear duct, so the tears remain on the face. Sometimes it is caused by the closure of the tear duct, or it may be an eye infection, which requires a veterinarian’s examination.

Developmental abnormalities of the hip and elbow joints

Although there are not many Japanese Spitz orthopedic diseases, the owner must be aware of the prevalence of abnormal development of the hip and elbow joints in purebred dogs. Both diseases are hereditary. This disease is caused by improper connection of joints. Joints will become looser and looser, eventually resulting in arthritis.

Depending on the severity of the condition, some dogs can walk normally, and severely lame.
