It's almost time for our annual ATTS Temperament Test! The test is open to all dogs (purebred & mixed breeds) minimum age of 18 months. No training is required prior to testing. The ATTS Test is a simulated walk along which your dog will encounter various stimuli (a neutral stranger, a friendly stranger, a hidden noise, a gunshot (loud cap gun), an umbrella, plastic footing, grated footing, weird/threatening stranger). Each dog's reaction/recovery is assessed by three ATTS Testers and a score is given. Dogs that pass all items recieve a certificate from the ATTS and these results are added to the national database.
To enter your dog, download the following Registration form and return with payment to our Post Office Box.
