Bernese Mountain Dog

Short title: 
bernese mountain dog
Personality: 
Although the Berner looks like a black bear from a distance, if you're anywhere near him, you soon realize that he's a teddy bear - friendly, easygoing and extremely huggable. The even-tempered Berner retains his watchdog instincts and is alert to anyone or anything that may be moving in on his family, while at the same time not becoming overly excited. These dogs are boisterous in puppyhood and retain a playful, outgoing personality as they grow up - some even say that they are slow to mature.

Anatolian Shepherd Dog

Short title:

Anatolian Shepherds are loyal, hardy and independent. They're stubborn dogs; however, and professional obedience training is highly recommended. Anatolians are highly territorial and suspicious of strangers.

Personality: 
Bred to be fiercely loyal, the Anatolian Shepherd can be highly possessive toward anything he considers "his," including family, property and livestock. Loyal to their owners, they are guarded and reserved toward strangers, making socialization an absolute must. This large, powerful and impressive breed usually appears calm, but when challenged, it has few rivals. An experienced owner will be able to bring out the best in this protective guardian.

Akita

Short title:

Personality: 
Loyal, fearless, brave, strong, independent, and intelligent are all apt descriptions of the Akita. He is dignified, confident, and noble. He can be single-minded to the point of stubbornness and is hard to dissuade when he sets his mind to something. The Akita retains his guarding instincts and will instinctively protect his territory, possessions, and loved ones; therefore, he needs a firm but fair leader.

Alaskan Malamute

Short title:

Alaskan Malamutes are strong independent dogs that love the outdoors, especially when it's cold. Some of these dogs are professional weight pullers that can pull over 1,000 pounds. Malamutes will become destructive if they're confined or left alone too long.

They love to howl and dig. Some breeders say female Malamutes will even dig den holes in your sofa. Most Malamutes are friendly with strangers and good with older children, but they're often aggressive with other pets.

Personality: 
The Alaskan Malamute is a free-spirited, affectionate and playful dog. He has a great sense of humor and is very devoted to his people. Powerful and independent, the Malamute is appreciated by experienced dog owners who understand how to train and socialize this unique, hardworking breed.
