The future of dog ownership is here…
Giving your puppy a voice, empowering your family for life.
By offering puppy evaluations (along with score cards and interpretations for families), we help take the guess work out of picking the right puppy for your personality and lifestyle. Not every puppy is the same, and this is where we take some of the guess work out of deciding which puppy/family pairing is best suited.
After evaluations occur, we work with each family on our reservation list and hash out the pros and cons of each puppy. It’s a mutually beneficial relationship for both puppy and family, and not only are families needs addressed, but also that particular dog. This sets up both puppy and family for a beautiful, life-long partnership to heal hearts and change lives.
We walk away knowing each puppy gets the right family, and each family gets the right puppy.
Understanding score interpretations will help you see what type of puppy traits would best fit your lifestyle. Access both the test guide and the score interpretations below.
Temperament traits assessed in puppy evaluations
Below you’ll see traits listed as either stable or adjustable.
These are what they are — inherent in the dog, and they won’t change. Through training, owners can help curb some of these traits, like draining their energy, learning to not chase everything (prey drive), etc., but they will always be who the dog is.
- assertiveness (toward humans)
- energy level
- prey drive
- human focus or pack drive
Pet owners and breeders both have a large hand in these traits. Exposure, socialization, and our early puppyhood BAB curriculum helps these puppies develop these traits and believe in their own abilities.
- nerve strength / resiliency
- touch tolerance
- sight sensitivity
- sound sensitivity
