It is no coincidence that a dog of this breed is called the American Dingo. The Carolina Dog is indeed an almost natural natural breed. It is believed to be a direct descendant of the ancient stray dogs that existed over 8,000 years ago. These dogs have not been selectively selected, they are extremely rare and almost impossible to acquire.
The Carolina Dog, like all natural breeds, has well-developed muscles, it is strong and agile, very hardy, quick-witted and extremely alert.
I must say that this breed is still not completely domesticated, and therefore these dogs are not recommended to be kept by insufficiently experienced owners, not to mention those who have a dog for the first time. The Carolina Dog is extremely suspicious and distrustful of strangers. In fact, they simply join the human “flock” and continue to adhere to the principles of “flock” life. Carolina Dogs get along well with those children with whom they grew up, but they hate strangers and other people’s children. The same applies to other dogs, cats or other pets. The Karolinska dog treats well only those of them with whom it grew up and whom it considers members of its “pack”.
Wool and care
A distinctive feature of the coat of the Karolinska dog is its change depending on the seasons. The winter coat is much thicker, fluffier and denser than the summer coat. On the ears, head and forelegs, the hairs are shorter and smoother. A ridge of coarser and longer hair runs along the neck, withers and back of the dog. The Carolina Dog needs to be brushed from time to time with a stiff brush with stable bristles. Since these dogs are extremely rare and the clubs do not selectively breed them, there is no evidence of any specific diseases for them.
The Carolina Dog must see a clear leader in front of him, whom he will respect. It is imperative to have early, long-term and intense socialization and obedience training from an early age. Rough or arbitrary teaching methods are completely ineffective. Classes should be built on the basis of respect, firmness, fairness, patience, consistency and, of course, reward.
Dogs of this breed should not be kept in a city apartment. They thrive best in the countryside, where they will have a large yard and plenty of room to roam freely. Please note that the fence must be very secure so that the Karolinska dog cannot dig in or jump over from above.
