Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power…

Thank you so much PAWS-ing  and joining us for Coffee Hour!  I love Thursdays as I sit and reflect on my four-legged friends.  Over the last couple of months there has been a lot of reflection, tears and joy shared about our furry children.   Today, I just want to have a little fun.

Most pet owners will agree that their animals have personalities.  Those personalities vary from breed to breed.  Often we select them for the personality traits that we like best.  I think to some degree we do that with our friends as well.  Whether canine or human, our personality is one aspect of our character that defines who we are.

There are five distinct dog personality types.  I wanted to share the m with you briefly and then give you a fun little link to assess your dog personality.  Can you see yourself in any of these dog types?

The Confident Dog is a natural born leader of the pack. He’s a team player and more than ready to take charge of a situation.

The Independent Dog is more standoffish. This personality is perfectly happy being away from the crowd. He space, and trying to force him to do something he doesn’t want to do will backfire.

The Laid Back, Happy Dog is always ready to greet everyone he meets. He gets along well with other dogs and cats.

The Shy/Timid Dog doesn’t like being in uncomfortable situations. Yelling and harsh training methods or discipline can cause this type of personality to shut down, and you risk losing his trust.

The Adaptable Dog is eager to please, cooperative, gentle and affectionate.  Not as outgoing as the happy personality, this dog gets along well with other dogs, cats and people.

Now it’s your turn.  Click here to find out what kind of dog you are.

I took the quiz and found out I’m a husky (big surprise).  The website stated “You got the Husky! Gentle and dignified, you are a dog that prefers an equal partnership. You are fiercely independent”.  Those who know me shouldn’t be surprised.  Have fun with the quiz, and then post the results on Facebook or Twitter so we can all join in the fun.
