The Polish Tatra Sheepdog is not known for liking water. They are fine with farm animals as they are livestock guardian dogs. They can do well with small dogs as long as they are socialized with them as puppies, but if they are not, then they are not good with small dogs. They have a good temperament, but they are a working dog, not much of a companion or family dog.
