Bogle Temperament and Behaviour

The Bogle is a highly intelligent, independent, and dominant dog. They are extremely active and athletic, and love playing and running. Bogles can be stubborn at times, especially when they don’t want to do something, and can be difficult to train. They are calm, but are also known to become destructive when bored or lonely.

Bogle Activity Requirements

The Bogle is a friendly, fun- loving dog that loves to stay active. They are well suited to an active lifestyle and get along well with people of all ages. While they enjoy playing and going for a walk, Bogles do require a daily exercise routine. If you are not an active person, a Bogle may not be the right breed of dog for you. Because of their high-energy level, a Bogle may be too much for some people. They do well with children, but they can be aggressive toward other dogs. If you are looking for a laid-back, easy-going dog, you may want to consider a different breed.
