While the Canaan Dog is highly territorial, the breed is docile with his family, yet reserved and aloof with strangers. He may be very vocal at times. This breed will need regular exercise, but is easily trained. His short coat requires minimal maintenance.

"AKC Breed Standard"


Canaan Dogs are a local type of Pariah Dog recently removed from the Negev Desert. The first dogs were sent to the U.S. in the 1960s.  Free ranging dogs continue to be collected from the desert and are being introduced into the original lines to increase genetic diversity. This is desirable and provides a rare opportunity that man-made breeds do not enjoy. The continuous injection of wild genes into American lines should help maintain the health of the breed while increasing the Canaan Dog's wild allure.
