About our Temperament Testing

GAk9 Kaden TemperamentPuppy Preschool and Basic Manners can be one-on-one programs with your GA K9 Trainer or group events hosted by Loving Hands Animal Clinic. Please stay tuned to our news & events page for important class updates or call Loving Hands Animal Clinic today!

Puppy Temperament Testing is used to evaluate puppies to determine each puppy’s basic personality. These tests are a good predicator of the dog’s personality, sociability, and potential trainability at maturity. The trainers at Georgia K9 use the results of these tests as an indicator to match the puppy’s temperament with the most suitable future environment and possible employment. This test should be done on the 49th day of the puppy’s life for the most accurate results. There are eleven standards by which trainers at Georgia K9 evaluate each puppy:

  • Approach
  • Social Acceptance
  • Following
  • Restraint
  • Forgiveness
  • Elevation
  • Retrieving
  • Touch Sensitivity
  • Sound Sensitivity
  • Sight Sensitivity
  • Structure

Before you purchase/adopt a new puppy give Georgia K9 trainers a call. Our trainers are here to offer advice on breed selection, breeders, and rescue groups.
