What is the importance of this procedure? They often say: which puppy will suit you at the meeting – take that one. And they take it. And they also take “That bigger one over there” or regret it – “That thin one over there.” Or visually – “That white one over there.”

All these preferences, of course, have the right to be. Love at first sight has not been canceled. But it will be very correct if it is backed up “according to science.” It is possible that, based on the results of the test, you decide to take another baby.

An animal is tested at the age of 45-50 days, just when the time comes for the puppies to go to new owners.

The Fisher-Volhard test does not require special preparation. Just ask the breeder to take the puppy you like to a separate room, and not by the scruff, but neatly in your arms. In order not to frighten the baby in advance. When testing, the breeder should neither address the baby nor express his emotions. The characters are you and the dog.

The animal must be placed in the center of the free space, you are four steps away from it. In total, you and your puppy will have to go through ten different tests. Evaluation – on a six-point scale.

During testing, you should write down your observations of the puppy.

The puppy with the most 1s will be the dominant, aggressive and active dog. It is difficult for beginners to cope with such a dog, especially if it is a serious breed. An experienced person will be able to raise an excellent guard, hunter, bodyguard.

Twos predominate – the “light version” of number 1.

Threes – the dog will be active with a slight tendency to dominate. Excellent prospects to raise a working or show pet.

Fours – a dog for a family with children or for people leading a calm lifestyle, a companion dog.

Fives are a timid and modest animal that will have to be patronized a little, but it will coexist well with other animals in the same territory.

Sixes are a tricky case. An independent and independent canine personality who has little interest in you. These are found mainly among northern and hunting breeds. You will have to make a lot of efforts to somewhat correct the situation.

Of course, with all the reliability of the results, there are exceptions. For example, a puppy is in pain. Or he is the breeder’s favorite, and no longer wants to recognize anyone else. So tests are tests, and when choosing a pet, listen to your heart too. “That little white one over there” – perhaps this is just your friend for many years.
