Character

The Eurasier is a calm, mild-mannered dog that is an excellent companion. They are alert, watchful, and devoted to their family. While they have a propensity to be reserved in the presence of strangers, the Eurasier is never timid or aggressive. This breed should be properly socialized from an early age. Some Eurasiers form such close relationships with their family member(s) that they have trouble being boarded for even a short period of time. They are an intelligent breed and they are quick to learn. They should receive soft-handed, firm training that is consistent but not repetitive. They are good watchdogs, but they are not guards. They will not bark without a reason. This breed usually gets along well with other dogs.

Ideal Environment

The Eurasier needs plenty of exercise and daily physical activity. They enjoy going for long walks, and they should have a safe area to run free. This breed shouldn’t be kept in a kennel, chained outside, or confined to a small space. If left unattended or isolated for extended periods of time, the Estonian Hound can become very depressed.

Dog Training!

If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of DogProblems.com. Adam will do whatever it takes to help you whip your dog into shape. I've used them to help with my Great Dane as well as help friends train their dogs. It's the first place I go to help answer users Questions. Many training issues are too extensive to answer in this forum, which is why I refer a lot of the load to his site. Update: I've been using and recommending DogProblems for three years now. I, as well as my users, value the techniques we've learned. I get weekly emails from users who have become better owners from the information they received.

HiWe have a 7.5 month old Eurasier (male, now neutered) who has become very agressive toward me (his primary caregiver). His attacks started with biting my feet right after he was fed and are now not limited to that. He was diagnosed by a vetrinary behaviourist as having anxiety and attention deficit with impulsivity and is now taking Prozac. Unfortunately, while things improved for a short time, they are now worse and we are at our wits end as we love him so much but he is dangerous to live with. Please send any information or advice you have as it relates to the Eurasier breed and how we might handle this.Kind regards.

The Chow Chow, Pyrenees, Elk-hound all have aggressive tendencies (ex-specially the Chow) The pyr brings even more INDEPENDENCE in the offspring as does the Elk-hound. It takes a special person who KNOWS the chow to be happy with a chow. I am so sorry to tell you this but you can not change the temperament and character of such a dog, you must live AROUND his behavior and find ways to compensate. It would be best for you to find some Chow owners who could help you in this instance as your breed of dog is not the usual common submissive companion dog that homo sapiens brought out of the wild to live with in peace and harmony, but is a special breed of dog that only few can manage. They will not do well with discipline as most of these dogs fight back instead of back down.
