Wolfdogs are trainable, but not as reliable as most breeds of dogs even with more training. The more wolf in the animal, the less reliable. A pure wolf or higher content wolfdog won't be safe to walk off leash. They just don't relate to people the same way dogs do, especially once they are mature. They can learn almost anything but don't have that "desire to please" that we've bred into most dogs. If you want an animal you can take everywhere and have off leash, consider a good quality German Shepherd Dog. Even a northern breed dog such as a Siberian Husky or Alaskan Malamute isn't good off leash, and a wolfdog that is part or mostly one of these breeds will not be either. In many ways it's almost unfair to get such an animal and expect that kind of behavior out of it, as it is not going to be able to live up to your expectations. I suggest you read this site - www.wolfdogproject.com for more info.

Yes they are, but they still have the animal instinct. When we go camping our Wolf Hybrid babies run all over the hiking trails without leashes and come back to us, it is like they are checking out the area in front for us to make sure it is safe. And the hybrids have learned more commands than any pet my husband or I has had before in our lives. But they do have that instinct, so I would not let just anyone touch them.
