    Default Is Your Dog Breedist?

    Perhaps you believe in breedism or you dont but I know that Rufus values Huskies and Sheps over other breeds. He will be friendly with everyone and will run around with anyone - but soon as he sees a shep or husky, he makes a b-line. Obviously it is behavioural due to good experiences but nonetheless it exists

    Nope, Terry loved everyone. All animals. He hated technological objects though. Very fearful of them.

    Frosty is definitely Breedist.

    From the beginning she's been really keen on other cattle dogs. And they usually have a great time together - so it's been re-inforced.

    Fairly keen on black kelpies though not all of them will play - some are too ball obsessed.

    And she's also very fond of Beagles - because my neighour has some she gets to play with regularily and there's also some on each oval that I visit. Some are better behaved than other beagles but there's two that play really well with her - especially wrestling.

    And she likes Airdales, Weimeranas, and Golden Retrievers - all because there are some she knows from a small puppy that are fun to play with. Some Golden Retirevers are a bit boring (Frosty rating) so she's getting less excited when she sees one of them but the Airdales and Weimeranas are always good value.

    She also likes staffies but not many will play.

    She's very wary of whippets because one would regularily beat her up when she was a puppy. But she does recognise they're not all the same so she's not terrified of all of them. Just the one, and she's slowly getting over that too - cos she's now quite a bit bigger, stronger and fitter than him so he leaves her alone.

    And she's learnt to stay away from the barky growly lunging on lead dogs no matter what the breed.

    Lady strongly dislikes any other sheep/cattle breed. Border Collies, Blue Heelers, other Kelpies. They must 'eye' her, which seems to make her very uneasy.

    Keeda had an unpleasant run-in (fortunately not a fight) with a German Shepherd when she was a puppy and is now much more cautious around German Shepherds than other dogs. Then again she's learned to practice caution with other dogs bigger than her as well, she just seems to particularly dislike GSDs unless the GSD is very friendly and not overly quick about approaching her.

    My dogs aren't.
    Jethro gets so excited about seeing ANY dog he comes across as nuts and Millie thinks everything and anything is there to do her bidding. LOL!

    Mine like all types.

    Although I must admit when it comes to off-leash playing I feel more comfortable if the other dogs are hounds because hounds play so loud and either like to chase or be chased which can frighten some dogs.

    Their best friend is a Basenji.

    I haven't really noticed this with Taya, though mum thinks she likes black dogs.

    She prefers saying hello to dogs her size, not too little and not too big lol
