Bear dog... sounds like an extremely strong-minded breed. Looks like a sweety, but I'm sure, he gives you hard times sometimes...

I was just looking up that dog, and the second google link is a company that uses the bear dogs to de-socialize bears. They say they don't make good house pets as they need tons of attention and training.

Seems like they'd be a great working dog to be used 5-6 days a week for a good portion of the day, instead of the other way around... Who knows though, because individual dogs of any breed can have very different personalities!

Still I think they're a good looking dog. Another one I like is the Finnish Lapphund, which seem like they're better suited as pets.

I'm into an Anatolian Shepherd or a Ridgeback. Beautiful big dogs. But stubborn and independent

Bear dog? That's nothing compared to Man Bear Pig.

Not the right breed for everyone, but not as difficult as I thought he'd be. He's fairly hard headed, smart, and really sweet. Definitely likes attention. Loves people and gets along very well with other dogs. We have to have an electronic collar for him, to reinforce commands when he's off leash. He learns fast, but you have to be really consistent and not coddle him at all when he's misbehaving. Pretty much the same as for most breeds, but a bit moreso. He's actually better behaved than the two lab mixes I've had. I wouldn't have two of them though, as they might bond too closely to each other and run off together.

I realize this is not the Tigre's dog thread, but I'll post one more pic I just found from a day out splitboarding last March, just because it's awesome:

Brewski seems amazing! Love the intelligent look in his eye in the first photo. In the second he looks so regal.

If this isn't the Tigre's dog thread, there should be one. I've never heard of the breed before your post. Reminds me a bit of the Norwegian Elkhound. A housesitting client had one; she was a rad dog. Also loved snow.

Wow Tigre, please start a pet thread with this pic, it's breath taking! It deserves to be on top and to not be hidden somewhere on page xy. We've got so many weird posts at the moment, some nice pics as yours would be a relief
