I just received notice that I will get a questionnaire for Raven when she is 6 months old. The study is being conducted by National Assistant DogTemperament Consortium. The C-BARQ protocol they are using was developed by Penn. it is online at http://vetapps.vet.upenn.edu/cbarq/

I have done a questionnaire on at least one other puppy.

Yes. Your results are yours alone, not correlated with the study.

That was a cool test, thank you for sharing.

Tested Tigger and he got all gold stars except on 'chasing' and 'attention seeking' and he got red flags on those hehe.

Cassie got gold stars on everything except exciteablity. That is the one thing I am working on with her. She gets super excited when anyone visits and mauls them with puppy-love when they arrive. Usually she calms down after a few minutes. She just rubs up against people like she wants to get into their laps but knows that she can't jump up on them. I call it the full body hug. LOL Although it isn't so funny when your guests or visitors don't like dogs or a fastidious about dog hair.
