The Australian Cobberdog is a very friendly dog with all animals, especially other dogs. It is somehow even able to get dogs that don't usually interact with other dogs to do so, feeling comfortable with the Australian Cobberdog. Its gentle character makes it very rare to see it involved in a fight, since its normal response is to avoid conflict and move away from trouble. It cohabitates perfectly with other animals like cats, birds or rodents. It will probably show curiosity and want to play with them, so it is important to train it to have adequate behaviour with other pets.
The Australian Cobberdog is one of the most versatile breeds in existence. It adapts well to anywhere it lives, whether city or country. It can live perfectly well in an apartment and has no problem putting up with the hours it spends alone waiting for the family to return from work or school. It is a dog with excellent hearing, which is important in its socialization with all the typical city noises. It deals well with new situations and greatly enjoys being able to do its best. This is a dog capable of doing anything when the person it trusts and needs is nearby.
The Australian Cobberdog has a great sense of play. It is always eager to chase after a ball, pull on a rope or play with children. Even when alone, its great imagination allows it to entertain itself by playing with a toy. The Australian Cobberdog never gets bored, and always invents something interesting to have a good time.
Australian Cobberdogs are peaceful by nature and their instinct to bite is almost null. In fact, they are not even destructive dogs in the early puppy phase. They have no need to chew on furniture or destroy slippers. In fact, they even treat their own toys well.
Australian Cobberdogs are not dogs that bark. Obviously, they can bark, but they have no tendency to do this when they are alone, when they are bored or when they want to get our attention. They normally only bark when there is a noise or someone who surprises them. They may also bark out of sporadic excitement when playing with another dog or person.
The Australian Cobberdog is a very intelligent dog with a great need to please people. This makes them easy to train, since they always want to grab our attention to teach them something. They are also good at agility tests or canicross, and they love going on long outings in the mountains.
