Welcome to Prince Lear's personal profile page. This page will stay with Prince Lear for as long as Tackleberry Solutions' exists and can be used to keep track of his bloodline and/or feature his personality/accomplishments.
Prince Lear was named off of a character (Prince Lir) who served as the hero in The Last Unicorn.
What Does Lear Mean?
- Helping others is something that brings a sense of fulfillment into your life.
- Normality for you is having good relationships at work and at home. Meeting new people and getting to know them is always fun.
- Your likeable essence and open spirit makes it easy to get along with everybody.
- It is easy for you to notice when somebody feels sad or is troubled and offer help at the right time.
- That is because of your observant character. Solving problems gives you pleasure.
- Bringing more justice into this world, is very important to you.
Prince Lear took his personality test on 12/13/2022 and landed a B. It is important to note that while Prince Lear did score multiple As, his overall grade averaged as a B due to a couple of tests that scored lower. *See more information on his social outing assessment*
To expound, potential service or protection dogs need to have the right personality, confidence and intelligence in order to qualify for specialized training. Puppies that do not pass our test are not recommended for service or protection work.
What Does a B Score Mean?
Overall, a B personality score is a very good grade to have in your home if you are looking for a serious protection dog. However, I would advise that you have some experience working and training with dogs before you decide to undertake a canine like this.
Service work examples that would work well with this personality score:
- Police work
- Military canine
- Personal Protection
- Search & Rescue
Furthermore, they have the potential to be excellent family pets. Their extremely loving nature, combined with their ability to better handle fear puts them on an excellent starting point for protecting their family.
Keep in mind, caution should be exercised when you have visitors. They will likely be protective of their pack (ie. their family) and may be suspicious of outsiders. Lots of socialization starting at a young age and consistent training is vital.
Social Outing Assessment 12/17/2022
Side note: Social outing assessments are done on a reoccurring basis to gauge how the puppy's personality is developing. Confidence and their reaction to things like: a new environment, strangers, car rides, etc. is an important aspect to consider when looking for a quality canine.
As a result, these assessments are done to help prospective owners decide if this particular puppy's personality has the potential to fit their needs.
The car ride into town was great. Prince Lear sat next to my son the entire way. He didn't whine or try to get down to make mischief. Furthermore, he was perfectly content to just enjoy the ride. (Which shocked me later - keep reading to find out why.)
Prince Lear showed behavior very fitting for a B type personality. He wasn't afraid of strangers (this is a good thing, fearful aggression is not desirable), yet he wasn't super friendly either. He stood there to allow pets, but then moved away. *Refer to video.
I totally expected a puppy of this age (7 weeks) to be at least a little bit nervous about automatic doors. However, he didn't stop for a second. He walked right through as if he'd done it 1000 times. He was confident in his walk, his tail was up and he didn't stop in fright.
While at the store, Prince Lear was cautious about exploring, but he certainly did want to explore. His tail was most often in a neutral position (not down, but not up either.)
Furthermore, he loved being next to my children and would follow them around until he saw something he felt worthy of investigation. At which point, he would stop and inspect before moving back over to my children.
Prince Lear actually caught me off guard at the start of his assessment. At first entry into the store, I was confused because he really wanted to go back outside.
This was hard for me to read because if he was trying to run away in fright, usually the automatic doors would cause a fearful puppy to shy away. In conjunction with that, fearful puppies generally have their tail down while in retreat mode. This wasn't the case for Prince Lear.
However, shortly after that, Prince Lear pooped right in the aisle (it was no small amount). After which, I started kicking myself for not picking up on his earlier indication by trying to get outside. It had not occurred to me because I had not yet introduced him to potty training and didn't expect that instinct to go outside to be so strong so early on in his life.
Upon reflection, I realized that he had just spent a 20 minute drive in my car while holding a huge bowel movement. Why he hadn't just gone in my car impressed me. This indicates a more mature intelligence since he was able to distinguish so quickly where he should and should not go.
(This is not to say that he is potty trained, only that his behavior during his assessments indicate that potty training (and hopefully training in general) should go smoothly.)
In conclusion, by combining Prince Lear's personality score and his social outing assessment, I strongly feel that his current personality is indeed at the B level and even almost an A but not quite.
To expound, he shows a very fascinating mix of caution and confidence. As a result, based upon the potential I see in him now, I'd be very interested to learn how he continues to develop as he grows.
