Canaan DogCanaan Dogs have a strong survival instinct. They are quick to react and wary of strangers, and will alert to any disturbances with prompt barking, thus making them excellent watchdogs.
Though defensive, they are not aggressive and are very good with children. They are intelligent and learn quickly, but may get bored with repetitive exercises or ignore commands if they find something of more interest.
