Goliath is very eager to please and is super attentive during his training sessions. He is not afraid of strangers and has begun introductory protection training. Click here for more information and videos of his work.
Goliath took his test on 9/17/2022 and ultimately scored an A. Only time will tell as he grows, his environment, socialization and training what type of personality he will stick with.
February 17, Update: Goliath continues to show good character with my children and I. His personality is developing in a healthy manner, and he currently exhibits a low B or a high C type behavior. Introductory training for protection work has started. See Current Training for more details.
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.
