All of our dogs have easily passed their AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) tests. Several also have their
Therapy Dog International Certificates (TDI), certifying them to do therapy dog work. No dog is worth
anything with a sketchy temperament. Dogs in our society today are pets first. You have to be able to
live with them. We feel the dog should easily assimilate into society with proper training and
socializing. Fear issues or aggressive responses are not what we want to see. Temperament is one of
the strongest genetic factors to come down in a breeding. Poor temperaments that cannot be trusted
in public and around other dogs, in my mind, should not be bred. Reserved is one thing, spooky is
quite another. We require soundness in that department. We look for outgoing and confident.
