Tolerance to other dogs

Unquestionably, an exemplar that presents an adequate level of tolerance towards others of his kind will not only be beneficial for him, but for us too because we will be able to interact correctly with them and enjoy in consequence of more freedom of movement; but it will also avoid his owner many headaches.

The breeds listed in the medium and high levels are classified in a similar way under territorial character because the last determines in great measure the characteristics we are now talking about.

When the behavior or general conduct differ on some aspects in a substantial way between males and females exemplars it is said that the species is sexually dimorphic. One of these aspects is tolerance towards the exemplars of its own kind and gender, and besides existing less females than males in the canine population when females manifests this greater tolerance, less conflicts will arise.

In any case, and independently from the breed chosen, it is improbable that in a due time there won't be any opinion of differences between our exemplar and others that could be related. This, besides being perfectly normal, will be of no use in non of the cases to isolate the animal from any future contact.
