Abstract

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 reagrd 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.
Key words: behaviour, dog, socialization,
