Ten Most Difficult Dog Personalities: Does your dog have one of these?

We humans always seem to try categorizing people by personality types.  Each decade, it seems, there is a new personality “test” (e.g., Myers-Briggs) or “survey” (questions that attempt to decode who we are or who we’re dealing with).

If people have personality “types,” then perhaps dogs do too!  So, we thought we’d provide a synopsis of these ten difficult doggie-characters:

So, is your dog one of these?  Or, does your beloved pooch have another type of “difficult personality?”  If so, send us a picture of your dog and what kind of personality he or she has.  We love all dogs, but let’s face it, some of them have — shall we say — rather “unusual” personalities.  We’d love to share yours with our readers!

    Our chocolate lab, Toby? I’d categorize him as a bit of a brat. Now that he’s 11, not so much, but he’s been a challenge all his life.

    Hmmm. Some of these fit some people I know. Wonder which copied whom? Dog or Man?

    I would add the “snuggler'” my favorite dog personality.

    The Flirt is my favorite. She looks lovable and flirty.

    Kathleen is right. The snuggler is the best, especially on a cold day or night. My Sally is a snuggler. Chihuahuas are good snugglers, always wanting to be touching you, but Sally is a dachshund mix. When larger dogs have the same tendencies, they’re more like leaners, and you’d better be sitting down if you’re a little old lady, because the more they like you the more likely they are to push you over with love.
