In my experience all Scotties are different - like children!!
THey have SOOO much personality for a dog!!
The main trick is being firm with them from day one. If you baby them too much and let them do what they want as puppies, they will rule over you the rest of their lives and if you are not the boss, why do what you say?
It all comes down to their breeding over the years to be "Independent hunters" It is intrinsic to their brain to follow their instincts. You have to get in early to fix that "wiring"!!
