Adult Xolos are noted for their calm demeanor, but puppies can be extremely high energy, noisy and often
chewy until maturity (after 2 years old), when they settle down and become calmer. The Xolo breed has
definite primitive temperament traits (very high intelligence, high energy, inquisitiveness, strong hunting and
social instincts). Thus Xolos today can be escape artists, climbing and jumping fences to chase small animals.
They possess guard dog ability and will not back down from a fight, yet as adults, when raised properly, are
known to become steady, well-trained and affectionate companions.

This is because the breed temperament overall has not been tampered with in their native thousands-year
history in the central americas, because that temperament was a good fit for free-roaming family, farm and
hunting dog companions among the pre-colonial Indian cultures. This has also ensured a healthy, sturdy
physical nature generally innate in both coated and uncoated xolos.

Xolo behavioral temperament, like other breeds, remains true when bred and raised properly, with the
strategic breeder priority focused on the maintenance of true physical and temperament breed quality and
responsible adopter ownership, rather than money. Given good breeding and wise ownership, as with any dog
breed, a wonderful companion results.

Xolo behavioral temperament can be compared to a typical Working breed, with high intelligence, sensitivity,
and social instincts. However for the same reasons, well-raised Xolos make outstanding and affectionate
companion dogs that bond strongly with their dog-wise humans.

Though physically grown at 1 year, dogs including Xolos are not emotionally mature until after the age of 2
years. Like other highly intelligent breeds such as terriers, and with the additional intelligence and energy of a
"primitive" dog breed, Xolo intelligence, energy and spirit are such that they need calm, persistent and loving
training. Therefore, obedience training and continued training and socialization is needed until adulthood at
1-2 years of age.

Quality and knowledgeable dog training is more critical with this breed than most other dog breeds, because
of their intelligence and spirit, and energy during puppyhood. Anyone considering adopting this breed should
expect to invest in additional dogtraining education for themselves, plus ensuring a spacious, safe physical
environment for the Xolo puppy(ies) - more so than most other breeds. The reward is a hypoallergenic,
intelligent and affectionate canine companion.
