Most White Swiss Shepherd dogs are gentle, very intelligent and learn easily. They are loyal to their family and may be wary around strangers, but are not prone to show shy or fearful behavior. Some people think the Arctic wolf was mixed with the breed to create its caution, however this is not true. The White Swiss Shepherd breed derived from decades of evolution to a distinct breed type from the German Shepherd Dog. The White Swiss Shepherd are suited for a variety of services from search and rescue to medical alert to therapy. They are also structured and have temperaments to succeed at performance events such as: obedience, rally, agility, lure coursing, barn hunt (ratting), protection sports, dock diving, fly ball, truffling, and other scent/tracking oriented training. They are natural herders, can cart, and are very well suited as an all around utility farm dog. They also love to paddle boarding, boating, and hiking. They can also curl up on the couch and watch a good movie!
The character of the White Swiss Shepherd is gentler and mellow than that of the working lines of German Shepherd Dog, but are protective of their people and dog pack.
