Understanding your dog’s personality type is very important, whether you have already bought your furry friend or are considering it. Similar to people, dogs display a variety of different personality traits therefore it is important to get one which matches your personality and also your lifestyle.
If you find yourself with a fearful dog who often shakes at other dogs, loud noises and avoids busy situations it’s essential that you try to avoid these situations as much as possible. Items such as dog crate covers can help with your anxious pooch, along with also adding some personality to the crate.
If you have a large family with lots of small children, looking into which breeds are best around children is vital. Choosing a dog which has a sociable personality should be considered over dogs with aggressive tendencies, they may be annoyed by children prodding them. Trying to train a dog to go against its personality will be a struggle! When it comes to training your dog or puppy, your approach may depend on their behaviour. If your dog is a natural working breed such as a Border Collie, its responsiveness to training will be a lot quicker than other breeds.
