The Norwegian Elkhound is bold and energetic, a hardy gray hunting dog known for his lush silver-gray coat and dignified but friendly demeanor.
These dogs are very active, energetic, and incredibly funny. The very concept of idleness is alien to these animals since their seething nature constantly requires action and activity. In addition, they tend to bark, and it is extremely difficult to wean a dog from this. However, it is possible to reduce the amount of barking, which is good news.
