Validating a measure of temperament

There may be risks involved to those conducting tests, too, when the dog being tested lashes out–but designing tests that are safe for the tester may skew results as well.

Personality and temperament aren’t cast in stone at birth.Nature and nurture work together, making predictive tests even more difficult to measure.Early experience, socialization, development and the consequences of learning will all have an impact on behavior.These often are adult dogs in which the character has already formed.Such evaluations might include: More specific tests might then be added to assess a dog’s suitability as a therapy dog, such as how he reacts to wheelchairs, people with canes, or unexpected body postures and movements.Once tested, puppies or shelter dogs can be better matched with owners.Better matches save dog lives and preserve loving relationships.They dream of the Lassie-beneath-the-fur, but end up with a headstrong aggressive delinquent, or a clingy anxious pooch that eats through doors.That’s where temperament tests can help, not just for professional breeders, but also shelters and rescues.Temperament tests are typically conducted on puppies between seven and ten weeks of age.But a number of behaviors of personality might not emerge until the puppy matures.
