What does our assessment mean?

1) At 7-8 weeks old, we can only see the beginnings of their personalities. Starting points if you will. How they ultimately develop is directly related to how you handle and train them. With GSPs, it’s not so much that any given dog can’t do something, but how easy or hard it will be to train them for success.

2) When we say a pup is Average or Low Energy… this is for a GSP puppy. There is NO actual low energy GSP. So the ratings are all relative to the nature of the breed.

3) Every litter is different. Sometimes you have pups that completely stand out in certain areas… other times, as with this litter, the pups are very similar with only some small or few differences, delivering a well-rounded batch of pups.

CHARACTER = If we were going to label the pup, this is what we’d call them. Kind of a quick overall impression.

VELCRO = How strong they bond to humans.

INTELLIGENCE = Are they paying attention to humans, or are they in their own little world?

ENERGY = Is there an off button?

COURAGE = Are they bold enough to strike out on their own and confront strange new things.

INDEPENDENCE = Are they comfortable on their own, or do they engage only with support from other pups or humans nearby?

CONFORMATION = Looks. Muscle and skeletal structure and more.

PREY DRIVE = Eat bird, play with bird, or run from bird?

SHOT OVER = Pistol shot in the same field to assess response.
