Their intuitive nature and connection to its master most likely were honed from generations of collaboratively hunting small game in the mountains. This means that they are extremely responsive to commands and easily trained. Taiwan dogs are reserved towards strangers and are fearless in protecting their family. They should be an integral part of the family household and not an outside dog because they excel with daily interaction and socialization. Socialization for the Taiwan dog is necessary to mediate its strong instinct to protect its master and family.
