Character
Both breeds have similar temperaments, but some subtle differences deserve attention.
Dogs of both breeds are independent and stubborn, loyal and good protectors. Both eschew strangers and don’t get along with small pets.

Both breeds are very affectionate and loving with their masters. They can be aggressive towards other dogs, but gentle, compassionate and trusting their owners.
They are also very clean dogs that rarely bark. However, this does not mean that they are silent! Dogs of both breeds are known for their “talkativeness”, they grumble, grunts, groan and mumble, communicating in this way with their owners.
Dogs of both breeds are very similar in character, and if you decide to get one of them, then you need to decide who you like best – a bear cub or a chanterelle.
