The Greater Swiss Mountain Dog is happy with an enthusiastic nature and strong affinity to people
and children. This breed is sociable, active, calm and dignified. They do need plenty of room to
exercise. They will not be happy confined to kennel life; they want to enjoy their family.  They crave
attention and physical contact. Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs are bold, faithful and willing workers and
are eager to please. The Greater Swiss Mountain Dog is confident in nature; the breed is gentle with
children.  He can be stubborn and determined. The Greater Swiss Mountain Dog is an intelligent
breed and is a quick learner. He can be difficult to housebreak, and tends to try to eat just about
anything, edible or not.

The activity level in the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog is variable.  They are capable of being athletic,
but usually that activity is in bursts; they are active for short periods of time followed by napping.  They
want to be with their owners and to participate; their activity level most often matches the activity level
of the family. As a working dog, they like having a job to do and enjoy participating in hiking, carting,
obedience trials, herding, weight pulling and backpacking with their owners.

Being alert and vigilant,  the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog is a good watchdog. They tend to notice
everything in their surroundings and are quick to sound alarm. Faced with a threat, they will stand
their ground and put on a show that will intimidate those unfamiliar with the dog. Greater Swiss
Mountain Dogs are accepting of a non-threatening stranger.  They are confident and comfortable in
unfamiliar locations, and are stable around strange noises and unfamiliar people. They are accepting
of other dogs and species, and are reluctant to bite.

This giant breed matures slowly in both mind and body, taking anywhere from 2 to 3 years. The
objective in training this dog is for the owner to achieve pack leader status. As youngsters, they can
be quite boisterous and they do require steady and reliable training to develop manners and physical
self-control.  As with all large, active working dogs, this breed should be well socialized early in life with
other dogs and people, and be provided with regular activity and training.
