Your dog is a natural-born pack leader, who's always more than able to take control of a situation. Your dog can also display domineering behavior, and has a self-assuredness that always shows in its body language. Your dog generally feels secure in its surroundings, but sometimes harsh training techniques may end up causing a display of aggression. If you know of any dog owners, be sure to share this quiz with them, so that they can find out more about their own pets as well.
The Independent Dog

Your dog seems to be the independent type, and as a result will only form strong bonds with those people it deems to be confident leaders. Independent dogs need to be given space, and tend to be perfectly happy being away from people for a while. Never force this type of dog to do something that distresses them, since you may end up losing their trust. If you know of any dog owners, be sure to share this quiz with them, so that they can find out more about their own pets as well.
The Happy Dog

Dogs like yours typically make a wonderful addition to any kind of family!

The Timid Dog

Dogs like yours typically need an owner who is calm, patient and consistent, and who is sensitive to their needs. Timid dogs don't usually like sudden or loud noises, and can find many new experiences to be rather uncomfortable. It's essential to give your dog plenty of opportunities to succeed in order to boost its confidence. Daily exercise will also help keep your dog's mind stimulated and reduce its insecurities.

The Adaptable Dog

Adaptable dogs are generally perfectly happy to follow their owner's commands, and tend to get along with other family pets too. Gentle, cooperative, and affectionate, these dogs are easy to control and make the ideal family pet. Their adaptable personality also makes them the perfect candidates for therapy dogs.
