General characteristics/temperament: The Korean Jindo Dog is active, intelligent, gentle, courageous, and extremely loyal. They are very active and need enough space to run, and require at least a 6-foot high fence. They are very intelligent and learn quickly, but require a lot of attention and interaction with their family. If left alone for too long, they will get into trouble. Many Jindo dogs are found in animal shelters, given up by owners who did not know what they were getting themselves into and find these dogs too hard to train. Early socialization is very important, and the owners must be able to establish themselves as the pack leaders. Jindos make excellent watchdogs and have the ability to distinguish friends from foe. Many will not take food from strangers. They will typically housetrain themselves as puppies, and have a very strong homing instinct.
