What is the Australian Cobberdog like?


The Australian Cobberdog is a balanced and very intelligent dog. It loves to learn new tricks is very trainable and is always eager to please. One of the characteristics that best defines it is its tendency to try and catch the eye of a person, as if trying to read what is expected of it. The Australian Cobberdog is sensitive and has great capacity to perceive moods or understand who needs to be cared for the most, whether it be a small child, an elderly individual, or someone who is physically challenged. This is due to its respectful and unimposing nature, especially beneficial for therapies addressing people who have difficulties interacting.

The CobberDog and people

The Australian Cobberdog is a dog that loves people. Trusting by nature, it is friendly to everyone, even strangers. It is perfect around children, always ready to play with them, go on an outing or share relaxing moments together on the video game console. With enormous curiosity for everything human, they always want to be where we are, even if we’re in the bathroom! Yet, this attachment to people isn’t a problem when it comes time to leave them alone, as they can easily entertain themselves with a toy or by just looking out onto the street from a window.

The Australian Cobberdog is a very friendly dog with all animals, especially other dogs. It is somehow even able to get dogs that don’t usually interact with other dogs to do so, feeling comfortable with the Australian Cobberdog. Its normal response is to avoid conflict and move away from trouble. It co-habitates perfectly with other animals like cats, birds or rodents. It will probably show curiosity and want to play with them, so it is important to train your dog to have appropriate behaviour with other pets.
