Are Landseer Dogs Aggressive To Strangers
When it comes to selecting a dog, you probably want one that is friendly, whether that's toward people, other pets, or both. In other words, a happy-go-lucky pooch that gets along with everyone.
While most canines are absolutely 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 introduced to new people, places, and experiences as they were growing up.
So, generally, you can make any pet dog into a friendly dog if you ensure they have an energetic social life and a happy home. Practically all canines will be social with their owners, but some breeds were bred as guardians and can be wary and even hostile toward strangers.
