The Japanese Spitz should be socialized with other home pets from an early age to ensure a peaceful coexistence. The Japanese Spitz has a dominant nature, so without early socialization or training, it may try to behave assertively over other house pets.
Dogs from the Japanese Spitz breed make for the perfect family companions. They are high on playfulness, affection, and loyalty and will love to always hang around with their family.
Japanese Spitzes are companion dogs that thrive on attention; they do not like being left home alone. You can train them at a young age to be home alone for a few hours. However, they still may not like being alone for extended periods.
Despite having a thick coat with lush fur, Japanese Spitz dogs are very easy to groom. This is because dirt and mud do not stick to their coats. Even if they get dirty, Japanese Spitzes lick themselves clean. So, brushing their coats once a week is sufficient.
Japanese Spitz dogs do tend to bark loudly at strangers who visit their home. This is because the breed is naturally protective of its family and displays this protectiveness through barking.
