I will definitely be using the volhard test

Remember to make sure when using eval tools they are used at the appropriate ages or they aren't very accurate.

Great post!!

One thing I've learned over the years, as a breeder, is to ask what the person looking for a dog WANTS. Especially when it comes to temperament. I don't want them to get a hyper pup when they want a couch potatoe....and this has nothing to do with structure..lol

Yes :), that is what the observations and Volhard Puppy Aptitude Test Eval helps with greatly. However I do find structure still even plays a part with that because a pup with poor structure may not be able to keep up with an active family in the long run.

Thanks so much for that post! It's definitely going to be helpful for me since I'm going to be getting a puppy in July (chocolate lab, not pit) and I already know what to look for in a puppy, but I am definitely going to use this evaluation since I want to maybe get into some kind of competition with this puppy. I'm going to be there for the whelping (this week hopefully!!) and I know the breeders very well, so I'm going to be spending a lot of time with the puppies as they grow. Do you have any pointers on what to watch for as the pups mature to 8 weeks?

Patch-O-Pits 05-16-2011 10:25 AM

You'll be able to see a lot of changes over the weeks... I personally like a pup that is outgoing and wants to be a people pleaser from the start

You certainly can't look at a couple of week old pup and know much of anything besides that it is cute and its color. You can of course also see if the pup has obvious issues like a tail is kinked, if it has cleft palate.

only thing i have to say is the best way to figure out how a pup so young might turn out is to take a look at how the parents are. that might not help very much at all. but it can help you decide what may b expected.

Actually, that only helps slightly, you'd have to know the bloodline and order inside and out and since within a litter there still can be a wide variety of personalities and temperaments, picking too young and or without knowing how to do an evaluation at the proper is a total crap shoot so to speak.
