How To Find a Dog With a Good Temperament
Finding out why a breed was developed, and the country and climate it initially came from, can help you understand what to expect in terms of behaviour and character.
Some breeds demand much more attention than others. A breed's true temperament can also take time to cultivate: the boxer's lively and extrovert nature means it takes longer to mature than other breeds.
The puppies of specific breeds could be very hard work in the early weeks but can make wonderful adult dogs.
There are seven types of dogs:
As a pack hound, the otterhound is amiable with other dogs. As a hunter, it has an innate urge to follow the trails of mammals. Once on the trail, it is determined, single-minded and nearly impossible to dissuade from its task. Even though the otterhound's job was not to kill its quarry, it will nonetheless give chase to small animals. The otterhound loves to hunt, sniff, trail and, especially, swim. At home it is boisterous, amiable and easygoing (although stubborn), affectionate with its family, and quite good with children. Because the otterhound was never traditionally kept as a pet, it is not among the most responsive of breeds. However, the otterhound is a low-key dog that can function as a quiet companion.
