Since the Canaan dog is a primitive working breed, they may be more of a challenge to train. That is not because they are not intelligent, but because they can think for themselves and need plenty to keep them occupied. It would be good to work with an experienced behaviorist, as opposed to basic dog trainer. You can learn various things to do with the dog to use up his energy, keep his mind engaged, and also prevent him from learning more bad habits. Some of these dogs may be energetic all their lives, as it goes with their working dog heritage.
