Default dog-friendly breeds

so, i know there is a list of breeds that are known to be more DA than others. are there any particular breeds that are know to be more docile and social than others? [yes, i realize that it's never a guarantee and that it changes from dog to dog, but i am wondering tendencies in breeds in general.]

That may be true, but some breeds in general are easier to socialize than others.

This is only partially true. You cannot buy a puppy out of a dog aggressive parent (mom or dad) and expect to never have a problem. Socializing is always important, but the temperaments of the parents matter too.

Agree completely.

My pit bulls great grand dad is a champion dog fighter. Reggin is part Gator. Neither his dad nor reggin is dog aggressive at all. I socialized reggin as a young pup. He was pretty easy to socialize. Just a little scared of dogs at first. He was the most timid pup of the litter, and I havent had any issues with him. His dad is 3 years old and hasnt had any problems with other dogs either.

On the other hand, I have met pit bulls and a couple other breeds at 8 weeks of age showing aggression towards other dogs. Obviously those pups would be harder to socialize.

I think its about how you socialize a dog and the individual dog. Some dogs are just more hard to socialize than others regardless of breed.

i don't completley agree with that, i was talkign to a lot of people that have kelpies on another forum. they've nearly all (except atleast 1) have problems with their dogs being DA despite their dog experience and socialisation. which is weird i guess, considering they were bred to work all day with other dogs around, but i suppose they also have the ability to be very focussed on their work

harry has been well socialised, he loved other dogs up untill about a week ago now he lunges at them all, he's had good socialisation and no bad expereinces.

It depends on the dog (and it's genetics) too, I think...


Although (in hindsight), I do not think I socialized my dog as well as I thought I *had*, she *did* have a bad experience at obedience class. She was fine with dogs prior to that. Would *more* socializing have helped? Probably, but who really knows.

We got her as a pup from rescue.. but have no idea what the temperment in her lineage is aside from her parents. Plus, being a dobe, she is protective by nature and not meant to work along side other dogs. In her case, socializing would only go so far, I believe...

There are plenty of dogs who spend most of their lives in crates without *any* socialization and have no FA whatsoever after they are rescued.

There are definite breed tendencies but dog are individuals also.... Sal is as dog friendly as any dog out there and he is a dreaded "Pit Bull". My Neighbors APBT is the same way.

I have seen some pretty DA Labs in my day.
