    Dear all,

    I would like to ask you in which form it's appropriate to use "an easy disposition".

    What I want to say is that a dog is an easygoing one. How should it be said having used the phrase "an easy disposition"?

    Is it correct to say "He has an easy disposition"?

    Thank you in advance,

    All the Best,

    Anna

    It is very unusual to speak of a dog in such terms. We usually say, 'he has a gentle nature'.

    "Easy" and "easygoing" do not mean the same thing. "He is easygoing." "He has an easygoing disposition."
