Nature and Temperament of the Frisian Water Dog

The Wetterhoun is an affectionate dog. The Dutch dog breed needs the company of its family. He cannot stay alone for long. So note how long and how often you are out of the house and have to leave your dog alone.

Wetterhouns tend to be quiet dogs. However, if they are bored, they can sometimes exhibit undesirable behavior. With good parenting from the start, you can largely prevent this.

The hunting instinct is very strong. This is because the Wetterhoun was formerly used as a guard dog and hunting dog. So note the following two things. If you get a puppy and have other pets, introduce them to each other. For example, if you are walking in the country with your Wetterhoun, the dog can quickly tear itself away and chase after a deer or a rabbit.

One reason why he was used as a guard dog in the past and is still used today is his reserved behavior towards strangers. As much as he trusts his master or mistress, he observes the behavior of strangers. This makes him a great watchdog.

Socializing of the Wetterhoun

The Wetterhoun gets along well with other dogs. If he meets other dogs, he behaves playfully. Wetterhouns also get along well with children. They are very affectionate, and people the Wetterhoun knows show affection. Because Wetterhoun is very active and wants to learn a lot of new things, it is not suitable for seniors.
