I’ve heard so often from people who specifically looked for a certain breed of puppy to bring into their family with expectations for that dog’s temperament. It’s important to remember that, just as with people, every puppy is an individual. That’s why we say behavior is the study of one. And even the most accepting of dogs will have its limits when it comes to being pushed beyond its comfort.
It is also important to realize that how a puppy is raised is very important to its success in your home. From early on, exposing your puppy to a broad range of people, sights, sounds, and environments in a positive way will help your puppy to see his world as good as he grows into adulthood. And teaching your puppy with management and positive reinforcement will build his confidence and strengthen your relationship with him.
