Puppy testing doesn’t predict adult dog character

Puppy testing doesn’t predict adult dog character –

Some people believe that the character of a puppy can be tested when it’s only seven or eight weeks old. But does this predict the character of the adult dog? The short answer is: no.  Scientific studies don’t support this idea. Young puppies are going through a socialization process, and are extremely flexible and plastic. They can change radically, depending on what happens in the environment of the puppy.
