Baby Dutch has a a cone head too and my breeder also told me the same thing on meaning how smart they will b! In his case it's so true! Dutch is super smart and picks up on training very well. He is 8 months now and was potty trained by @ 2 months! We r in the process of preparing g and training him for agility competitions as he can't compete thru AKC til at least a year! I love this breed!
