The Northern Inuit resembles a wolf in appearance and has wolfish qualities.
The Northern inuit is faithful, friendly and placid. They are rarely aggressive or showing any guarding tendencies, and will usually submit when challenged.
They are NOT a Guard Dog but the size and look of them will not invite intruders
They mix well with other pets, and because of their friendly personalities they love the companionship of other dogs and very rarely argue.
They are a loyal companion they make great family members and like to be included in everything the family does.
They love children and are happy to play games for hours.This Breed loves to play but stimulative play is the best .
They do not like being left alone for long, and if are can be destructive if left alone for hours unsupervised. Northern Inuit's are better having another dog around for company, but the companion dog must be able to to put up with the boisterous rough and tumble play of the Northern Inuit.
Northern Inuit's love to learn, they need early socialization , as they can be a bit stubborn .
Providing the owner is prepared to spend plenty of time socializing and training them they can be safely let off lead. They can be obedience trained with lots of praise and encouragement they become very good at it. My 3 Northern Inuit's trained well gaing their Puppy, Silver and Gold kennel Club Good Citizen awards. Many owners are now training their dogs to pull rigs, They have however got a very short attention span, and will usually do things a couple of times before saying OK "What's in it for me"
If you have a nice gardenand want to keep one the Northern Inuit is NOT the dog for you, as they to chew leaves and grass too dig. Most owners now have concrete gardens or an area in the garden for humans only.
You need to have patience to own a northern inuit and a good sense of humour is a must. You will be rewarded a thousanfold
