A little about the Harrier


The Harrier makes an excellent outdoor companion, excelling at agility and loving to sniff and trail. They can be very good companions for children, but require a large amount of exercise and may be prone to bark if this is not provided. 



The major health concern Harriers experience is Canine Hip Dysplasia. More occasionally they can develop Epilepsy or Perianal Fistulas. If not given enough exercise or mental stimulation they can develop behavioural issues such as excessive barking.
