Are Dingos Friendly Or Dangerous To Strangers?
Wanting to get a Dingo and need to know whether Dingo are friendly or aggressive to strangers?
According to pet experts, Dingo Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of breeds that are considered the friendliest dogs to strangers.
When it comes to deciding on a pet dog, you possibly want one that is friendly, whether that's toward people, other pets, or both. Put simply, a happy-go-lucky pooch that gets along with everyone.
While most pet dogs are definitely fond of people, some are really sociable and love to meet new people all the time. Friendliness doesn't necessarily depend on breed. Most dogs are friendly if they have been exposed to new people, places, and adventures as they were growing up.
So, essentially, you can make any dog into a friendly dog if you ensure they have an active social life and a happy home. Almost all canines will be social with their owners, but some breeds were bred as guardians and can be wary and even aggressive toward strangers.
