With puppies, some temperament traits are stable, and some are adjustable. While there are many additional traits we can look at, I have found these to be crucial in determining my placements for service, therapy, facility, and family pets.
Assertiveness (human and dog)
Prey Drive (intensity)
Nerve Strength / Resiliency
Sound Sensitivity Sight Sensitivity
Touch Tolerance (compliance only- not if they like it)
