It’s nice to see dogs do tricks and understand the commands when given but what’s often overlooked yet as important is, what is your dogs Temperament.

Temperament in the dog world is the equivalent of Character in people.

A person with a good character is one of high integrity, courage, fortitude, honesty and loyalty. These attributes are held by many dogs, the issue is how to find a pet with the right temperament and how to nurture to oblige to human contact.

Most everyone whom brings home a dog hopes for their pet to have a good temperament but hoping isn’t good enough. Finding the right temperament comes down to firstly asking yourself: what do YOU want and expect from your dog in the first place. From that point, finding a dog that fits that perspective is the second part. Working with the breeder or hiring an experience dog trainer can help you pick out a puppy that best fits your lifestyle. Lastly is nurturing its temperament with training, love and rules.

This can take time and monetary means but look at it this way, you can spend it wisely early on or spend it later to correct problems.
