I was just curious how old or how long do you have to have a puppy to get an idea of it's temperment?? Like can it be perfect then just start going crazy or are really high strung dogs always high strung?? Please let me know what you all think!!
This depends on a few things. Like many humans, a child may be easy going their whole life, then they hit the horror known as the 'teen years'. Many dogs go through a rebellious phase at around 6 to 12 months of age. Many dogs also will go through a fear stage as well. In general I think you know early on if your dog is generally easy going, or nervous. Dominance related behavior is harder for some people to detect and deal with. The level of training and understanding of dog behavior can also effect the personality..
