The utonagan dog breed is a medium to large sized dog. While there are no set weight standards for the breed, their weight should appear in proportion with their size. Adult utonagans often range in height from 23-35 inches (from ground to shoulder).
Despite the breed's wolf like appearance, the utonagan is a very sociable and friendly dog. Their overall friendliness and calm demeanor makes them ideal pets for families and children. The breed gets along with other pets and is often described as very intelligent and easy to train, which makes the utonagan a good choice for first time dog owners.
Utonagans are average shedders and need to be brushed at least twice per week to keep the undercoat free of loose hair and to help prevent tangles. The breed is highly energetic and requires daily exercise to meet their energy needs. Generally utonagans need two walks a day as opposed to one walk which most dog breeds need.
