A Wolf-hybrid can be quiteskittish and does not respond well to inanimate objects, fast motion, loudnoises, or new people. They require much patience. Training is not for theweak and serious consideration should be given prior to obtaining a wolf-hybriddog as they require firm, consistent training and ample space to roam. Ifthere's something you find foul and offensive you can bet a wolf dog will rollhappily in it and coat themselves in the funk! It is not until a Wolf Hybrid is about 18 months of age, that it will start showing signs of the wolf. Wolfs younger than 18 months of age are adolescents, they are playful and adaptable. They take directions readily and can bond with other species. Young wolves act more like the common dog as they have not developed into maturity. As a wolf grows out of its adolescents, its hormonal system reaches maturity and it will begin to exhibit all of the typical behaviors of the wolf.
