GloryToo’s Temperament Test 2013

GloryToo’s Temperament Test 2013
GloryToo is from the GG litter
She is the mother of the LL and NN litters

My good friend, Suzan Guilford, came to do the police/narcotics test. She is a former K9 handler and police officer, former police chief, and has taught at the Wyoming Police Academy. She has done my temperament tests for over seventeen years, except for a two year absence while she was working in Florida. Suzan and I over the years have incorporated most of the SAR exercises into her testing, in case Janet & Bonnie can’t come do the SAR testing, which was the case with this litter.
