The Siberpoo has a loving and affectionate temperament, being highly bonded and attached with its family, enjoying the company of the members. In spite of its calm nature, it starts getting aggressive or misbehaving out of boredom especially if left alone for a long point of time. However, when given proper care and attention they turn out to be extremely friendly and amicable emerging as man’s perfect companion. Having a highly protective nature, they possess a strong ability of sensing danger, thus helping in keeping children and even adults out of any adverse situation.
Though they are a great family pet, young children must be kept away from them or be supervised by an adult during their interaction with these dogs owing to the aggression inherent in the latter. It is essential for parents to train their kids about handling this breed to prevent any unpleasant incident. They can also get along well with other pets specifically dogs when brought up with them. Their energetic and boisterous nature does not make them well-suited for elderly people who would probably be looking for a hassle free pet.
These smart dogs can be a trainer’s delight because of their intelligence, a trait inherited from both parents, though they might be stubborn or hard headed sometimes throwing child-like tantrums. Thus a firm and patient trainer is essential to manage them in a tactful and witty way, rather than implementing harsh and forceful measures. Siberpoo puppies should be taught how to socialize with people and other pets. As they have a power of tracking different scents they can be trained on this so that their skill may be utilized in a productive way, for instance saving the family from any hazardous situation.
Giving them about two and a half to three cups dry dog food daily would suffice their needs. They may also be provided with a diet that will help in maintaining the essential nutrients needed by their body.
