Are McNabs Friendly Or Dangerous To Strangers?
Wanting to get a McNab and need to know whether McNab are friendly or aggressive to strangers?
According to dog, McNab Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of breeds that are considered the friendliest dogs to strangers.
When it comes to choosing a dog, you most likely 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 dogs are certainly fond of people, some are really sociable and love to meet new people all the time. Kindness 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 canine into a friendly dog if you ensure they have an active social life and a happy home. Pretty much all canines will be social with their owners, but some breeds were bred as guardians and can be wary and even aggressive toward strangers.

The McNabs reputation as an indefatigable "all-weather" dog is also opening up a new avenue of work for the dog: Search and Rescue.
