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: Pearl notices people, and shows an interest in their doings but is not insistent about it.  She would not take it upon herself to introduce herself.

2. Following: score 5 - She follows when we ask her to. On her own, she's not curious enough about our doings to go with us "just because".

3. She'll wait to see what it's all about before working to see if the restraint is solid or not. If it is, she finds a way to work with it so she can be comfortable.

4. Makes herself visible but she's non intrusive. Doesn't need to be the center of attention at all.

She may even be on the brink of a wallflower; she likes to be around the other dogs more than people.

5. Pearl is an open book with an open smile.  Happy to receive a hug but rarely asks for one.

6. She will work for praise but is quicker to understand with a reward increasing value over time.

7.  Like with restraint, she will wait and see what it is all about before she attempts to remove what ever is causing her discomfort.  She's a "negotiator", working all the angles before resorting to action.

8. Sensitive to crashy noises  (OK so far with thunder) but recovers quickly. Relates noises to their source wonderfully.  Confident enough to investigate the source of novel sounds.

9. Spots moving objects and is able to predict the landing point of different objects at this young age.

10. Recovers quickly from the very few  events I've watched her experience. Doesn't hold a grudge

11. Makes her own decisions about barking.  Stops when redirected. Whines for expression, doesn't wind up to full barks in that case.  Enjoys barking.

12. Digs purposefully, but is easily distracted away from it. Many little holes instead of expanding one.

Mobility Service Dogs and Training is founded on good body control skills for the dog.  We will begin Pearl's training with Agility, to teach her precision and self awareness of her body movements.

Pearl loves working in any way shape or form, as long as you are not in any hurry. She really loves her home and the confinement we have for her is not challenged.  I really like the way she's turning out, along with some fantastic color possibilities.

Her little "stash" on her muzzle has lightened from coal black to grey with smatterings of light brown. Her undercoat is taking on a black hue, while the top coat remains white.  She is 75 lbs at 6 months.

Eager to cuddle and ever so gentle with her self, she understands when its time to stop and mind her business. We tried her with the 

American Beauty litter when they were 6 weeks old, with positive results. Pearl is slipping right into the role of Nanny-dog, and we sure do appreciate the help.
