A dog’s temperament is essentially the dog’s general attitude toward people and other animals, and is a result of both inherited and environmental factors. Temperament testing in dogs is most commonly conducted for breeders and rescue organizations, but it can be interesting for any dog owner.
For instance, the Bernese mountain dog temperament is loyal, affectionate, and often cuddles with their owners. The golden retriever is known for retrieving things and being friendly.
Over-vaccinating dogs is a growing concern for owners. You want what’s best for your pet, so it’s natural for you to question what’s right for their health. More recent research suggests that the annual revaccination of dogs is unnecessary, and could actually expose our pets to a greater risk of adverse effects.
If you are worried about over-vaccinating your dog, a titer test can help. It provides evidence as to whether your pet still has antibodies against a specific disease from previous vaccination. Make sure you educate yourself about this process.
If the titer is abnormally high, your dog has an infection that needs to be treated immediately. Titer testing can be used to determine the effectiveness of a vaccine or the presence of any natural immunity towards disease.

Whether you're training your dog yourself or taking them to obedience classes, teaching them these basic commands should start the day they come home with you. These are also the foundation in any good training program.
Practice often, and give generous praise as your dog succeeds!

I used Full Potential for my 8 month old Havanese puppy. She was barking, jumping and did not know right from wrong. Nothing we did seem to work. My mother used Dylan for her sheepdog puppy, so I gave him a call. Luna went and stayed for 4 weeks. I was able to see her and was they were in contact with ne regarding her traing status And updates. When I picked her up after the 4 weeks, I was amazed by the progress! Luna was able to sit and stay, did not bark in our faces and was so much more manageable. They taught me what to do at home to maintain her training. I couldn't be happier.
