Getting a peek at our pups' personalities

December 23, 2015

Our thanks go out to volunteer Melissa for running the temperament testing for L Litter. This was a huge sacrifice since the trainer who runs the tests has to be a stranger- Melissa hasn't been able to cuddle the puppies until now.


Temperament testing is the first big evaluation we do for our Angels-in-Training. It's important to make sure a puppy will be happy as a service dog, and when we know more about the dog as an individual we can tailor our training methods. 


During the test, the pups were brought one at a time into our training center where Melissa guided them through a series of simple, fun exercises meant to assess the pup's personality. These include opening an umbrella, shaking a can of metal bits, and tossing a ball of paper.


L Litter is our first group where every puppy retrieved the ball of paper and brought it back to Melissa. This is a good sign that they have a high drive and love to learn. We have some high hopes for these guys!
