The AKC includes a temperament description with every breed standard, but we all know each individual dog will ultimately develop a unique temperament, or personality. That development begins at birth, and eventually is molded by the owner through training and socialization. This class, AKC Temperament, is based on the newly revised AKC Temperament Test (ATT title). The class will incorporate situations and objects that mimic real world situations and obstacles that fall under six categories: social, auditory, visual, tactile, proprioceptive (motion, position), and unexpected stimulus. These socialization skills are easily transferable, and relevant to other canine pursuits like Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog certification.

Prerequisite: Dogs should be 6 months, or older, and have completed beginning obedience.
NOTE: If you choose to have your dog temperament tested, there is an additional fee to be paid to the AKC to obtain the ATT certificate and title.
