These ancient hunting dogs were developed on the Korean island of Jindo. While they practically housebreak themselves, they are highly intelligent, dominant, and self-motivated. This means that if you feel you want to bring one home, be prepared to be Alpha, and practice gentle, positive, and consistent training and socialization from the start.
