Get to know the Korean Jindo dog
All you need to know about the breed
While their coat colour can be red fawn, white, black and tan, grey, or brindle, all Korean Jindo dogs cut a dashing figure. On top of good looks, they’re clean, relatively quiet, and incredibly loyal: all the ingredients needed for an excellent household pet. Just remember to keep them busy.
The Korean Jindo is a medium to high energy breed who also happens to be keenly intelligent. This means they require near-constant stimulation, both mental and physical, to keep them from seeking out alternative, and destructive, sources of entertainment. Think squeaky toys. Additionally, the Korean Jindo dog is remarkably good at jumping and, when left unsupervised in an enclosure, might just pull off an escape.
Their physical prowess and intelligence are accompanied by a dominant and confident disposition that can prove challenging to the inexperienced dog owner. While quite trainable, the Korean Jindo dog must first respect their owner before learning and responding to commands.
As generally one-person dogs, the brave and alert Korean Jindo will be reserved around strangers and fiercely protect their human pack. For the owner capable of appreciating this breed’s incredible qualities, a truly unique bond lies in store.
