An investigation on the relationship between temperament and socialization upon the development of the behaviour of the dog was carried out. The test of Queinnek was applied on 10 puppies from the Dobermann and German Shepherd breeds. The temperament type of each puppy was determined with regard to characterize its future behaviour and the adequate relationships between dog and men. It is shown that socialization in puppies with temperament types L and F occurred easier and rapidly, thus presuming a problemless education and behaviour subordinated to human goals.
