Good With Dogs:⬛⬜⬜⬜⬜⬜⬜
The New Guinea Singing Dog does not do well in cold climates at all. They are not a cold-weather dog. They are a wild animal and are not considered domesticated or a pet. These dogs need a lot of room to roam, run and exercise. They need a pack and need a place that their singing does not interrupt neighbors. This breed is extremely rare and is considered one of the rarest, if not the rarest breed in the world. Getting one will be very difficult as the fanciers of this breed do not sell puppies lightly and most, if not all will not sell to more northern area's since the breed does not do well in cold weather.
It is hard to say that about any dog really since part of it is what would someone pay, or how badly do they want the dog. Even in the same breed, some may be more valuable than others based on their bloodlines, especially ones from a good breeder who have had a history of good health and temperament and clean health testing results.
They are the one of the rarest dogs in the world and probably the most rare. They are wild animals and are not very good house dogs. And since there are only about 90-100 in captivity that would mean they could cost up to 2,000-5,000 dollars. Another thing about them is they live to be 15-20 so you might not want one of these dogs.
Singers make a wide variety of vocalizations, but the "singing" is just howling. They do that a lot! They can do all the other typical vocalizations heard in any dog breed, including growls, barks, yips and so on.
Singers have medium sized litters for the most part. New Guinea Singing Dogs actually don't make very good pets, since they are a very primitive type dog. They are extremely intelligent and are hard to contain (meaning they are excellent escape artists.) Anyone considering keeping one as a pet really needs to know what they are getting into, have adequate fencing (usually a tall fence with a top as they can climb out of almost anything), and want a dog that is not usually very biddable. By that I mean they have a mind of their own and don't really care if they obey commands. They are interesting dogs for those who appreciate a challenge and have the experience to raise them well.
