Welcome to Star's personal profile page. This page will stay with Star for as long as Tackleberry Solutions' exists and can be used to keep track of her bloodline and/or feature her personality/accomplishments. Simply send us the information and we will update her page as she grows. This includes profile pictures, accomplishments, personality, videos and more. 

Now you can show off your superstar with their own page!


Star took her test on 12/13/2022. Ultimately, she was graded a C. Here are the observer's notes on the test:

  • Acclimated quickly, may be a little sleepy
  • Played willingly with children
  • Well rounded personality that has a full mixture of both confident and submissive behavior that puts her smack dab in the middle. (Which is a very good score to have for family protection work.)

More about a C Type Personality Score

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.

Current Training

Once you place your deposit, Star will be scheduled to complete 3 - 4 weeks of formal basic training. After which, she will be familiar with:

  • Leash Manners
  • Sit
  • Stay
  • Come
  • Basic Manners (no jumping, drop it, etc.)
  • Be Gentle With Small Dogs And Children

Star'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 Star's commands and provide guidance as needed in order to establish authority as her new owner.

social Outings Assessment 12/19/2022

Social outing assessments are one on one outings with a puppy to gauge how they react to a new environment, strangers, etc. This is important in further identifying the puppy's behavioral development. 

Side note: Special consideration needs to be kept throughout the course of this assessment. The tiniest details can throw off the results of a puppy's true behavior. In this case, it was cold, she was tired, and Star has now fully entered into her fear stage. While this is a normal part of a puppy's development, she will act a little more skittish than she normally would once out of the fear stage which lasts between 8 - 12 weeks.

Bath Time


I had to add this part in, before the trip, we gave Star a bath. She was calm, didn't cry and stood still for me while we gently scrubbed her clean. Afterwards, my 4-year-old daughter helped me to dry her off. Even then, she just stood there calmly. While she was shaking from the cold, she didn't show any signs of fear (didn't whimper, try to hide, etc.)

Car Rides


Again, Star remained calm and collected during her first trip into down. My daughter kept her warm in a dry towel as she was still a little bit damp from her bath and it was cold outside. 

However, I will note that both into town and on the way home, she was quiet and still. Even fell asleep next to my son on the way home.

First Entry

Upon first entering the store, Star was clearly confused. While she didn't cower or whine, I could tell she was uncertain. Her tail was down, but she was standing straight up and looking around like she wasn't sure what she was supposed to do next.


While Star didn't go our of her way to greet anyone, she didn't shy from them either. However, I'd recommend her behavior around strangers be gauged again once she passes her 12 week mark. Once out of her fear stage, her natural inclination around strangers is going to be much more apparent.

Playing with the Children


While she did take a few minutes to warm up to the new environment, Star showed tons of love and patience towards my children who kept picking her up and holding her. Even when my daughter got a little bit too smothering, she didn't show any impatience. (Refer to video.)

Leash and Automatic Doors

While Star didn't try to run away and hide, she didn't show any inclination to explore either. Most of the time I had to carry her around because she was too uncertain to walk on the leash. This made it especially difficult to gauge her reaction with the automatic doors. I tried to encourage her to follow me through the doors, however, she just wanted to stand there and look at me.

As a result, I'm not fully convinced that her actions at the store was a true reflection of her current behavioral development. I say this because of the numerous variables we had thrown in her direction during her assessment. I'll be curious to see how she behaves on her next one.

Final Observations

Certainly, only time will tell how she continues to grow and develop but I will note that her actions were very in line with her personality score of a C. She was smack in the middle between a little timid yet not cowering in fear. 

It is important to note that her mother was much the same way while she was young. However, once she reached the age where her personality fully solidified (2 years old) she did a complete 360. That is to say that she went from timid to confident.

Predictions Based On Current Behavior

Factoring in Star's bloodline of both of her parents, her current behavior in conjunction, the results of her personality test, and in observing her in general, I'm thinking that Star has got the potential to be a great protector or even just an excellent family or emotional therapy pet when she grows up.

If she's anything like her mother, she'll use that concern she has for pleasing her family in conjunction with her love for their safety to become a force to be reckoned.
