Narla is her happiest when at home in a calm environment, free to shadow her owner around the garden or play while someone mows the lawn.
Narla is true to her breed - alert, intelligent, watchful and courageous. She is highly trustworthy and reliable, with a tenacious sense of duty. As expected, Narla is loyal to her owners and wary of strangers, protective and not great with other dogs socially.
Narla likes plenty of pats, chasing games with her chew toys, a bath and a gentle hose down. She also likes the car. She dislikes being startled, loud noises and will be wary in unfamiliar situations. She gets frightened during thunderstorms too. She is usually sedated when taken to the vet.
At home, she is a friendly, happy dog and will nudge your hand for a pat.
Active singles or couples with a calm, quiet routine looking for a loyal, affectionate and steadfast companion. Narla loves people and is eager to please.
Like most cattle dogs, Narla needs to be the only permanent dog in the home and is not recommended in homes with kids.
She will not suit homes where people live in very close proximity to each other with small outside areas e.g. villas, units, apartment complexes, terrace houses, strata complexes etc.
As Narla is people orientated she needs to be part of family activities.
