What Is Puppy Temperament Matching?

We follow the BAB program for temperament testing so we can make the best match for our puppies. This helps make the transition for the puppy and the family much easier. It also gives the puppies a voice in the family with which they are matched. Each puppy will come home with a score card.

Each puppy is evaluated on the following temperament traits during week 7.

  • Assertiveness
  • Nerve Strength/Resiliency
  • Sound Sensitivity
  • Human Focus
  • Confidence
  • Touch Tolerance
  • Sight Sensitivity
  • Tenderhearted
  • Motivation Level
  • Energy Level
  • Prey Drive
  • Dog Friendliness
