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. 

 

HARRIER HEALTH INFORMATION

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.
