The aptitude test was originally developed by Joachim and Wendy Volhard and is a widely recognized method of testing aptitude of puppies to help match them to homes and observe areas of strength or improvement for precious and further socialization, development and training opportunities.

The first 12 weeks of a dog's life are the most critically formative stages, and proper early socialization is incredibly important.


The way you raise and train your puppy in combination with their genetic makeup and how much you socialize them (or don't) is going to play a bigger role in how your puppy turns out as an adult.



We are happy to evaluate one puppy in the litter, or evaluate entire litters for either the breeder, or the potential new owner looking for the right fit for their family. 

We sanitize all items used to ensure the safety of the young puppies, and we conduct the testing in an area of the breeder's home that the puppies have not yet been in.

All results are gone over with the breeder and/or potential new owner, and the client also gets all paperwork with results for each puppy evaluated.

Litter Temperament Testing:

Investment - $60 for the testing and emailed results


If you have a new dog in your home, or are interested in one that is up for adoption and would like to have them evaluated, we can certainly help you with that.

We can go to your home to do the evaluation, or meet you at the shelter or wherever the dog is currently placed to evaluate them.

We will do an overall behavior assessment of the dog, and can do specific testing if needed as well.

Evaluations in the Breeder/Owner's Home or Shelter:

Investment - $60 for the testing and results
