I am currently considering getting a dog and I have always been drawn to a certain breed. However, I have heard some negative things about them and I'm not sure if they are true or just misconceptions. I don't want to make a decision based on false information.
So, are there any common misconceptions about the breed that I should be aware of? I appreciate any insight or personal experiences you may have. Thank you!
I've had my dog of this breed for just over a year and so far, I've heard many misconceptions about their temperament. One of which is that they bark A LOT. While some dogs may display a more vocal nature than others, not all dogs of the breed are incessant barkers. My dog is not one for barking and only does so when provoked or when there's a perceived threat.
Another misconception is that they are not good with children. From my experience, this is simply not true. My dog is extremely affectionate and gentle with children that come into our home, and I have seen this behavior displayed by other dogs of the same breed.
In conclusion, there are common misconceptions about the breed, but it's important to remember that not all dogs are the same, and their behavior can vary depending on their upbringing, temperament, and socialization. I would suggest meeting a dog of the breed and getting to know them before making any decisions.
