AKC Temperament Test

Next test date:

Sunday October 25, 2020:   See the Premium for details.

Test your K9 companion’s natural predisposition to react to stimulus from six different categories: social, auditory, visual, tactile (touch), proprioceptive (motion), and an unexpected stimulus.

The ATT is a noncompetitive, pass-fail test that will screen for fear, shyness, inability to recover, and lack of cooperation.  Desired traits are that the dog will be emotionally stable, inquisitive, appropriately social, biddable and recover from a startling situation in a reasonable amount of time.

Dogs must be at least 1-year old to take the ATT test and dogs who do not pass the test may retest when ready.  Dogs who pass the ATT test twice under two different evaluators may earn the ATT title and list the suffix, “ATT” after their name.

Entry Fees:  $25.00 for Pre-Entry 1st Test; $20.00 for Pre-Entry 2nd Test with same dog.  $30.00 per test on entries taken the day of the event.  Registrations are limited to 16 dogs per trial.
