Puppy Temperament Testing

Breeders have been using the Volhard test for decades as a way of looking closely at each puppy and getting a better idea of who they are and what they'll need to thrive.  It looks at confidence, forgiveness, sound sensitivity, prey drive, and more.  Our trainers will use this tool to give you the information you need to place your litter, as well as determine your best candidates for :

Homes with Children

Service Dogs

Detection Dogs

Hunting Dogs

We have over 15 years of experience testing litters from various breeds including Poodles, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, Vizslas, Golden Retrievers, Labradors, Wheaten Terriers, purpose bred mixes, and more. 

Check out this video of Mallory and Jen testing a litter of Standard Poodle puppies at Alpha Dog K9 Training.

If you’re a breeder who would like to bring your litter to our facility for Volhard testing, please contact:
