ID # Breakdown
Pheonix and her ID breakdown: H2.10Z
Below you will see Pheonix featured in a few of our Instagram reels. She is the one in the pink collar.
Pheonix took her personality test on 9/17/2022 and scored a C. As she has continued to grow and mature, Pheonix's personality is actually leaning closer towards a B. However, she would have to gain a bit more confidence while out in public before I would say that for sure.
To explain, while in her comfort zone at home, Pheonix likes to rough house with the other puppies and is working her way up to the alpha role. On the other hand, Pheonix is more cautious while out in public. While she shows no fear of strangers, she only allows pets from those that are show no fear of her. Otherwise, she'll turn away.
A canine that is a C is the best personality for a family who is looking to keep their children safe. A dog that scores a C is likely to be very loving, patient and protective when needed.
Type of service work recommended for this personality score:
- Personal Protection
- Search & Rescue
- Emotional Therapy
While they will need to be socialized and trained consistently, they will not typically require a whole lot of effort. Some skill will be needed in order to establish an Alpha role as its owner. However, with enough practice and study, even novice dog owners can learn how to handle this type of protection dog.
A dog with a type C drive will not exactly be trusting of visitors, but are very unlikely to bite unless provoked or told to (in conjunction with their training.) They may even warm up to a few people who come over if they judge them to be safe. Introducing the dog to the visitor in a friendly and calm manner can help smooth over any ice.

This is Hazel. She was the mother dog of our very first litter. She has a gentle, yet defensive temperament. She is very loving, she also is smart and not afraid to protect her family. She is also a very good judge of friend from foe. We are not afraid to have her out when friends come over to visit. You can learn more about Hazel by going to her page here.

Social Outing Assessment May 2023 Age: 10 Months
In public, Pheonix was very focused on my children. She would instinctively stand near them and face outward towards the traffic. See video for more details (pending.)
Possible Protection Work
At this point, possible protection work with Pheonix is yet to be determined. She doesn't show fear of strangers, and she has a high play drive among the other puppies. All of these factors are a great starting point for protection work training. However, she does need to gain more confidence in public and get more comfortable with playing with people. Only time and further training will provide a better answer.
Pheonix is scheduled for 3 weeks of formal training with Hook's K9 Training starting May 31st, 2023. After which, she will be familiar with:
- Leash Manners
- Basic Manners (no jumping, drop it, etc.)
- Be gentle with small dogs and children
- confidence Building
Pheonix's training ques and how to handle her can be provided via video, however, I strongly recommend in-person pickup so that we can teach Pheonix's commands and provide guidance as needed in order to establish authority as her new owner.
