Can Bergamasco Dogs Get Along With Cats?

    There are canine individuals as well as there are feline individuals - but what regarding those of us that enjoy both? Can we have a feline and a canine in our household, or are they truly temporal opponents?

    Rest assured, canines and felines can become the very best of friends, or at the very least learn to peacefully exist side-by-side. If you already have a cat in your home as well as are looking to add a canine, picking the right breed will go a long way towards a harmonious partnership.

    Particular breed groups are most likely to get along with felines than others. As an example, the Toy Group consists of breeds that are caring and sociable. They were reproduced to be companions and lap warmers.

    Members of the Sporting Group are friendly and outbound. These lighthearted dogs are pleased to make close friends with any person they meet, consisting of pet cats.

    On the other hand, the perky Terriers were created to hunt and kill vermin. A fast-moving feline could trigger those lively predacious reactions. And the sighthounds of the Hound Group are hardwired for a chase. No feline will appreciate being the target of that type of attention.

    Ultimately, members of the Herding Group have a solid desire to herd anything that relocates, including their owner as well as kids. Some pet cats might find this frustrating to endure.

    Remember that these are generalizations. Many pet dog breeds can live calmly with a pet cat if they are trained well and socialized as puppies.

Bergamasco Information

A sheepdog with a strong work ethic, the Bergamasco's most unique characteristic is its coat, which contains "dog hair," "goat hair" and "wool" that combine to form black or gray felt-like mats. The mats grow over the course of the dog's life, reaching the ground at approximately 6 years of age. The coat can actually smell like a sweater when it is wet. But despite its formidable appearance, the Bergamasco is really a trim, athletic sheepdog.

The Bergamasco is an alert, observant and patient dog breed with good self-control and balance. This breed is suited even as a guard and companion dog. The Bergamasco establishes close bond with his owner. Aggressive or overly shy behavior is a fault.
