The Utonagan was bred by dog fanciers to resemble wolves. They are regal in appearance and are more ideal to raise in places with colder weather. These dogs enjoy the outdoors, and owners need to see to it that they get plenty of exercise.

Despite their aggressive lupine experience, they are hardly ever wild or aggressive creatures. In fact, they are quiet and would better thrive in packs, so it is advisable to get two instead of one. Introduce your Saarloos wolfhound to small animals or children at a young age as these breeds have high prey drives.
