All Breed Temperament Test was held By Midnight Solo Training Academy on June 12th, 2010

We thank Temperament Test Associates (TTA) Evaluators Sandie and Don Bingle for conducted the test and joining us for a BBQ again this year. I had a lot of fun apprenticing with Sandie and Don, working towards mine TTA certificate as an evaluator. 

TTA is a Canadian association trained and skilled to test the temperaments of all breeds of dogs. Temperament test consists of 10 sub-tests.   A test is failed if the dog at any time shows extreme avoidance; hides behind the handler or panics, shows aggressiveness when not provoked, or exhibits obvious avoidance at the footing test. At any of the tests the dog may startle, but it is the recovery time that is what is most important. If the dog passes all of the sub-tests, he will receive a certificate, the day of the test, with his Temperament Test Number.  At the conclusion of a test, each handler also receives a verbal critique on the dog's test performance.

15 teams were entered, 11 passed TT, 5 of them were Black Russian Terriers whelped in Midnight Solo or sired by our studs. We are thrilled to report that all entered BRT teams passed the test.

We did some show training with Floyd and groomed him. It was wonderful to see how well socialized he is and see him again after he left our home in April.

Thank you Radmilo and Snezana for your love and dedication to Floyd. We can't wait to see him again soon.

Please stay in touch, keep training and socializing your BRTs,
we appreciate all the work you do with your Blackies.

We are looking forward to seeing many of our puppies again next year at our annual BBQ and TT.
