Otto's Temperament Scores

BASELINE - September 2021

An "Otto"  photo journal.

Temperament evaluations are begun the second our dogs walk through our door. We begin to record observed behavior as soon as the pups are born.  Through careful observation of the dog's "baseline" reactions and inherent coping mechanisms, we can gain an at-a-glance understanding of the dog's behaviors  before and after our influence. 

See more about our temperament tests and how we score our dogs

1. Social attraction - drawn to younger people, doesn't seem to have a preference between men and women. Always happy about guests. Not vocal or excitable, doesn't change his body language.

2. Following: hasn't changed since he first arrived at our kennel - stays a respectable distance behind you, will follow no matter where you go.

3.  Restraint - Freezes when held tight. Has never bucked against the collar.

4.Social dominance -  Never tries to steal the show, happy being an interactive audience member.

5. You know excatly how he feels about something - open and honest about himself.

6.. Job oriented tasking - meh. Sort of. He has independent thought processes, at this age much of life has to do with him.- not us.

7. Touch - Aware and responsive, same reaction to heavy or soft petting.   Neutral to testing

8. Sound sensitive - ignores most, aware and responsive to sharp sounds, not reactive.

9. Sight - aware and watchful, not reactive.  No lengthly or targeted stares.  

10 Stability - solid and unflappable.   Nothing much upsets him with the exception of being scolded. He pouts and tries to apologize with ernest.

7/15/22 - A neighbor took a deer (or elk? not sure) and the basic dressing attracted coyotes not usually active in our area this time of year or day. While the others were sounding off in every direction, Otto the Other One slipped quietly out of the yard and did perimeter sweeps for the rest of the day until dark. I didn't know he could get out of the dog yard but I guess HE did!. I watched this beautiful beast carefully follow invisible boundaries, checking in at almost clock work intervals. It was almost spiritual watching him lift his nose to scent the air. My Otto, The Other One. Smiling on a cloudy day.
