Judging the Canaan Dog

Weight and size:  Height 50-60 cm., males may be considerably larger than females.  Weight 18-25 kg.

We are dealing here with a dog of medium size and weight, and medium build. Again, balance and correct proportions are essential.  Males may be noticeably larger and stronger than females, but with both males and females, our aim is towards the middle of the range described and not to the extremes.  The Canaan should not appear to be a large or heavy dog, but neither is he small and overly refined.  This is a medium sized but powerful appearing dog that obviously appears capable of surviving in difficult conditions and defending himself and his property.
