Is it Possible to Make a Pet Peace Loving?

 In Stories

Yesterday, the radio had an episode which dealt with efforts to save golden retrievers in an eastern country.

Apparently, some retrievers, which no longer had homes, were wandering in urban areas. When they saw food, they ate. They were frightened away, when more aggressive dogs came by. The retrievers preferred to give up their food, instead of fighting the dogs who wanted to take it from them.

So, for the most part, golden retrievers are peace-loving by nature. This makes me wonder:  is it possible to make a pet peace-loving if he or she is not
that way by nature?

Do any of you have thoughts on this?
