JJ Litter Search & Rescue Test Results

JJ Litter Search & Rescue Test
The JJ Litter was tested at 48 Days

Mr. Blue went to southern Colorado for Search & Rescue; Mr. Green stayed here in Sheridan to train for Search & Rescue; Mr. Sparkle went to Utah for Search & Rescue; Mr. Red went to northern Colorado for obedience, herding, tracking and agility competition and to be a therapy dog; and I kept Miss Purple for breeding, nose work and agility competition and therapy dog work.  See info and photos of Miss Purple, now Mercy, in the “Our Family” section of this website.

Miss Pink is available to a working home, preferably where she will use her nose (Search & Rescue, tracking, nosework, etc., because she LOVES to use it.)

Acceptance/Attachment  The first test involves evaluating the pup’s acceptance of the strange place and its willingness to interact with the stranger.  Ideal reaction is eye contact and interest in the stranger but no sign of nervousness in the interaction (we don’t want a “Protect me!” attitude), followed by visual investigation of the surroundings and then a return of attention to the tester.  The testers put in the test area a large metal wise man from an outdoor nativity scene to see what reaction the pups might have.

Pain Sensitivity  The loose skin over the ribs is gently pinched and the pup’s reaction is noted.  Ideal reaction is to notice the pinch but be unconcerned by it.  We also look for a willingness to forgive the tester.

Retrieve   Next, willingness to retrieve is evaluated using different toys and balls.  Ideal reaction is to repeatedly being the toy back to the handler rather than moving off to “possess” it.  The type of bite on the toys is evaluated:  a full mouth bite shows more confidence and drive than a front-teeth-only bite.

Hunt for Food I  This test begins with a piece of bacon jerky tied on a string and dragged to attract the pup’s interest and see how interested it is, how hard it will work to get it, and how hard it will work to keep it as the tester jerks, tugs and generally prevents the pup from easily eating it.

Unstable Footing   Since SAR dogs will search in all kinds of terrain and areas of destruction, they must be confident in insecure situations.  We used a tarp and a float cushion on top of pieces of plywood resting on pvc pipes, plus a strip of plywood on a wooden sawhorse set on its slide, which made a see saw.

Wheelbarrow Test  The pup was placed in a wheelbarrow.  Janet walked backwards in front, offering treats to the pup as Bonnie wheeled it around the room.  They ended by lifting the wheelbarrow handles so as to lower the front and Janet knelt down, inviting the pup to come out of the wheelbarrow to her.

Submission Test  The submission test is designed to give an idea of the pup’s tractability, trust in humans, and willingness to submit to a human’s directives. In the submission test the pup is held firmly on its back for a short period of time.  The tester counts the seconds it takes for him to resist, then accept, the restraint.  She should not passively accept the restraint, nor should she panic or show avoidance of eye contact.  Ideal reaction is to resist, then submit and look the tester in the face.  We also look for a willingness to forgive the tester.

Courage and Aggression  Courage and aggression is evaluated using a police car that when turned on plays sirens and loud voices.  Will they stand their ground?  Will they go investigate it?  Excellent reaction is to go to the car and check it out.  Extremely excellent reaction is to actually attack it while it moves.  Good reaction is to investigate it after the tester turns it off.  The tester encourages the pup to investigate after it is turned off, if it wouldn’t while it was making noise.  She notes how much encouragement is needed.

Fear  A metal can filled with metal items (horseshoes, nails, bolts, etc.) is dropped behind them from a height of about 2 feet while they are looking away from it.  Will the pup hold its ground and then go look at what dropped from nowhere?  Excellent reaction is to acknowledge and turn towards the sound and then confidently go see what made the racket.  The tester encourages the pup to investigate, if it doesn’t on its own.  She notes how much encouragement is needed.  I find most of my pups look towards the racket and keep on playing with the toy they had, rather than stopping their play to go investigate.

Surprise  The last test involves getting the pup to chase you (or a toy) towards a  place with a hidden person, from behind which an umbrella is opened suddenly and then lowered to the ground, still open.  The umbrella this year was opened with great vigor.  The pups are evaluated on how they recover from being startled and if they’ll go investigate.  Ideal reaction is for the pup to startle but hold its ground, then move right up to check out the umbrella.  A super excellent reaction is to go up and bite it and/or walk all over it. The tester encourages the pup to investigate after the umbrella is on the top step, if it doesn’t on its own.  She notes how much encouragement is needed.
