Roman took his test on 8/8/2022 and scored a A without question. He is a very sweet and loving. However, he isn't afraid to alert to danger and is fearless of strangers.
In the past, we've aligned our A type personality score with the Volhardt grading system. However, we've found that their summary of a canine that scores a 1 (or an A) does not match what we've seen of protection dogs and Doberman Pinschers in general.
Here is what we've found:
A canine that has an "A" type personality has little to no fear. They're confident in themselves to the point where they are not frightened by new encounters like other canines with a lower personality score would be.
Curious About New Things
As a result, when presented with a new experience, they're more likely to be curious about the object/person instead of frightened. Obviously, this will differ with each puppy/dog depending on several variations such as age of the dog, size, movement and noise level of the object or person, etc.)
Less Likely to Develop Fearful Aggression
In conjunction with that, a type "A" dog can also do excellent as a protection canine because they are less likely to develop fearful aggression.
Because of their confidence and lack of fear, they'll likely be more friendly towards strangers, so you won't have to worry as much about accidental bites or stress about taking your protection canine out in public. (Don't let this fool you however. With the right training, an A personality can easily go from friendly to protection mode on command.)
Be warned, in some cases, they may not be friendly to new people/animals. Sometimes an introduction will be necessary in order to show your canine that the visitor is not a threat. At other times, you may need to secure the canine somewhere else until the visitor has left. As always, this will vary strongly based on several factors to include their socialization level, training, etc.
Furthermore, a dog that has less fear is able to think more clearly. Making them more intelligent and quicker to pick up on commands. So much so that many canines with this personality score will have a natural "6th sense" so to speak that can aid them in judging the character/intent of another person.
This could even include picking up on danger from many different factors to such as natural disasters like an earthquake or a fire, or from people such as an attack or ambush.
Potentially Great with Children
In fact, we've found that an "A" type canine normally does really well with children. They've shown that they can be smart enough to realize that children are vulnerable and have demonstrated more care and protection towards that member of their "pack."
Service work examples that would work well with this personality score:
- Police Dog
- Military Canine
- Personal or Family Protection
Your Own Confidence is Important
Even though we've found through experience that even novice dog owners can train a dog with a type A personality score, they will have to ensure that they're willing to be consistent and willing to learn how to do so.
This is because an A personality score will want to be the alpha. Also, their high intelligence level will give them the need for regular exercise and play. Otherwise, they could develop bad behavior as an expression of their boredom or dominance.
They'll Want to Be the top Dog
If you have other dogs in the home, be sure that they are not also scored as an A since both Alpha personalities could cause them to clash. However, a ton of early socialization will help smooth this over.
In summary, you can be confident that your dog is going love working and give it's job everything that it has got. An A type personality is the type of canine that would die for you in the battlefield if it had to.

Social Outing Assessment 11/4/2022
Social outing assessments are done to gauge a puppy's confidence level and their reaction to new things. While this was not Roman's first time out one on one with us in town, but his reactions have been similar every time.
While on his outing, we took him to the park and the grocery store. He was easy on the leash and showed no fear towards strangers. He was also very concerned about the approval his handlers and quick to learn.
In summary, the fact that Roman is confident and curious are all good signs. This is an indication that he's very unlikely to develop fearful aggression and that his current level of socialization is off to a great start.
Videos of Roman
Video Dated: 11/17/2022
In this video, I had taken Roman to the vet for a well-check in preparation for his long road trip to his new home. While there, they had a statue of a cat that he really didn't like.
Video Dated: 11/14/2022
Roman is currently still on the exposure level of his training. In this video, you'll see him working with my intern Audrey (click here for view her full profile page).
This is his first official training session so we're using baby steps to get him started. First, you'll see him working with my son Jackon. Notice that Jackson was reluctant to get puppy kisses on his hand, so he had a hard time giving the puppy his treat.
However, Roman keeps a good attitude towards it and still tries to figure out what Jackson wants him to do in order to get his treat.
In the second short section of this video, you'll see Roman working with Audrey. She is introducing him to sit and preparing him to heal. We want him to be prepared for his forever family. This means that when we teach him to heal, he'll be accustomed to both left and right commands depending upon the need for his handler.
