Play assessment

Penn Working Dog Center's
"P" litter at play, 2014

Based on coding of early social interaction of puppies bred to be working dogs, we have identified some tenable behaviors which might serve as early indications of the working role a puppy is best suited for.

Anyone breeding or raising dogs to be sold as working dogs is invited to download this coding guideline. We invite participants to send us completed spreadsheets, which will be shared on the site so that others can see the connections between dogs' early behaviors and their later working roles.
