Scotties are tough little dogs that tend to be more on the feisty side. They have a stubborn streak and tend to be fearlessly independent.
Because of their stubborn nature, they can be difficult to train because they were bred to work apart from their owner, without needing direction. A Scottie won’t stop and ask you what to do next but will do it on his own.
They may look like a cuddle buddy, but they are formidable guardians and were bred to guard anyone or anything that they deem their family.
They make excellent guards because of their strong-willed tendency, fearlessness, and independence. By nature, these shepherd dogs can be highly aggressive unless they're very well trained. They're also only really happy when they have a job to do, these dominant dogs can be a challenge even for the highly experienced dog owner.
Anatolian Shepherd Dog
Protective and territorial, but also intelligent, patient, and profoundly loyal, these muscular avengers are prized as working guard dogs without equal. Anatolian owners must be strong leaders, willing and able to handle a dog as dominating and demanding as it is calm and loving.
The Anatolian Shepherd dog was first bred to work independently, make decisions on his own, and protect his flock from outsiders, so training the breed to respond to commands will definitely be a challenge.
Boston Terriers are known for their boundless energy and fun-loving ways. They can provide endless entertainment with their silly antics. Boston Terriers are slow to housebreak because they have a tendency to resist commands and often refuse to obey the owner.
Boston Terriers are very individualistic: Some are high-spirited and clownish, some are stubborn characters, and some are sweet and gentle. We don't recommend adopting a Boston Terrier if you're not an experienced owner as they might be a handful.
American Eskimo Dog
High-spirited and cheery, American Eskimo dogs make great companion pets because of their well-behaved and friendly disposition. They're loyal to their humans but can be stubborn and prone to excessive barking.
These dogs need lots of attention and care, which can make them difficult pets for busy families on the go. While they often play well with older children, their high-energy nature can be too much for younger children.
