Anytime you are considering bringing a purebred dog into your home, it is very important to consider the dog's temperament when choosing a breed or type of dog you want to be a part of your family. The temperament describes how they behave, their demeanor, their general personality and basic energy level. Is the dog nervous or calm? Do they listen to commands or are they constantly distracted?Are they in an anxious frenzy when you leave the house, or do they bid you adieu and go back to sleep when you close the door behind you? Does the dog
have aggressive tendencies or are they sociable and accept new situations and other dogs? Is the dog curious and inquisitive with new situations or is she shy and afraid to try new things? Does the dog show confidence and happiness when given a new task, or is she cowering and reluctant to move forward and try again? These are all good questions to ask when you are trying to determine what type of temperament your dog has. A good temperament shows intelligence and soundness in a dog's mentality which is paramount in choosing a well-bred dog in conjunction with their conformation and health records.
Both of my dogs, Hummer and Cher, have the best temperaments anyone could ask for in a dog. Both bred and raised at the Wine Country Pet Resort in Napa, both Karazan Dogs, are sweet, congenial, intelligent and gentle. They were easy to train as puppies, quick to understand the inside and outside routines, quick to understand what they should and should not chew or dig, and eased into my sleep and wake routines. They are happy quiet dogs who do not demand attention or food, they eat together and are happy in each others' company. They are obedient and affectionate and are the most sound dogs anyone could ask for. I look forward to bringing another Karazan dog into my home.
