Description of the Temperament Test

The ATTS Temperament Test focuses on and measures different aspects of temperament such as stability, shyness, aggressiveness, and friendliness as well as the dog’s instinct for protectiveness towards its handler and/or self-preservation in the face of a threat.

The test simulates a casual walk through a park or neighborhood where everyday life situations are encountered. During this walk, the dog experiences visual, auditory and tactile stimuli. Neutral, friendly and threatening situations are encountered, calling into play the dog’s ability to distinguish between non-threatening situations and those calling for watchful and protective reactions.

Dogs must be at least 18 months old to enter this test. The test takes about eight to 12 minutes to complete. The dog is on a loose six-foot (6′) lead. The handler is not allowed to talk to the dog, give commands, or give corrections.

Failure on any part of the test is recognized when a dog shows:

 

  • Unprovoked aggression
  • Panic without recovery
  • Strong avoidance

  1. I have owned most of these dogs over my 71 years on the planet. Only the Pit Bull was a problem.Not with people but with other dogs who attacked him. The shepherds are the easiest to train and control and are used as guide dogs for the blind in many countries. Cropping dogs ears or tails is illegal in my country Australia.

  2. Most studies focus on dog bites that are reported by the bitten person- therefore most studies will only include bites which need medical attention and there have been many cases where people lied about the breed they were bitten by, either due to embarassment or simply because they have very little knowledge about the different dog breeds and how to tell them apart.

    A recent study was conducted using information from veterinarians reported to them by the owner- it was all info that included the dog’s proper breed or closest guess at a mix rather than a few moments glanced at by an uneducated stranger.

    The people tell their veterinarians about the dog’s behavior, including it’s reaction to other people and animals and whether it has bitten before. It indicated that small breeds are more aggressive than large ones and more likely to bite multiple times. Not only that, but the most aggressive dog in the world, according to the study, is the Short haired miniature dachshund. They were most likely to bite their owners and most likely to bite other people, while most dogs tend to be aggressive toward one or the other- ie guarding breeds may bite other people if they percieve them as trespassing into the home.

    It had long been time for a new and more effecient method of telling which dogs are really most likely to bite, and it seems that owner reports are the most efficient way- you need to know the breed or mix to contribute to statistics about said breed, and even animal control officers are often unable to determine which dog is a pitbull versus a boxer or mastiff! That’s a whole nother study, but it shows that if even the trained professionals get confused then random eye-witnesses are likely even less reliable.

    I presently have an English Mastiff, and a better temprement you could not ask for. My 2 year old Bitch, Izzy, is wonderful with children and has a wonderful nature amongst people and othe dogs.
    Vicious? Not a sign of aggresion!!

  4. I got a pit bull a few years back,
    I was maybe twelve,
    I’m fourteen now,
    In April I’ll be 15.
    She died this passed summer.
    In a dog fight.
    It was horrid.
    The worst part is,
    She’s only been in a few fights her whole live,
    And that was the only time she’d fought back.
    She always thought that SHE was the mother,
    Which was cute.
    She always barked at people who came to the house,
    But, she’d smother them in kisses the second the person pet her.
    I took her for a walk everyday,
    And I started not using the leash,
    And there are these German Shepperd’s (Nothing against breed!) down the street that frequently barked at us,
    And often growled.
    She didn’t even look to them.
    Instead she’d drift slowly to the other side of the road all casual like.
    We then got two chihuahuas,
    She adored them.
    She loved to play with them,
    And often treated them like they were her size.
    If they thought they were to small for something,
    She’s show them an easier way.
    She wasn’t ever rough on them.
    She liked to watch the way the move,
    Because they were smaller,
    And seemingly not growing.
    She hated leaving them behind when we went for walks.
    She liked having her little friends.
    Then we got another pit,
    His name is Caesar.
    He’s now a year old,
    He’ll be two in November.
    He’s already bigger than she was.
    And,
    Has been in a few dog fights as well,
    For the first two he didn’t even fight back,
    He didn’t know what was going on,
    He didn’t understand it.
    Then after watching his companion die,
    He hated dogs.
    Never did he want them around again.
    When another dog would enter the yard,
    He’d bark and growl and be prepared to attack.
    Once a dog got into OUR house.
    The dog was a mutt name Max,
    He was blond,
    And VERY short and fat.
    And had trouble running and walking due to short legs.
    He was very cute.
    When the fight happened he rolled over and lied there.
    While my pit had him pinned.
    The worst there was was a small scratch on Max’s ear.
    Caesar was just getting a message across.
    “Don’t come near my family or house.”
    And Max did come a few times with his owner who’s my friend who lives down the road (Walking distance)
    But he didn’t get near the door.
    He knew better now.
    Caesar gets out a lot,
    But hasn’t gotten into a fight.
    Which makes me curious cause,
    He barks and growls at dogs when they’re in the yard or a viewing point.
    And when he gets out he goes to the fences they’re in and barks and growls and runs against the fence,
    And once he went to the German Shepperd’s yard (There are maybe three or four of them)
    And I though for sure I was gonna lose my baby,
    But he walked to the fence,
    The easily jumpable fence,
    And barked, and growled,
    While they did the same,
    Then,
    Almost on command they all just walked away from the fence.
    Not a single one of them caring about each other.
    I was grateful,
    And surprised.
    I want to get him a leash and take him on a walk every day to get him accustomed to other dogs.
    He’s fine with puppys,
    A small dog,
    Smaller than our chihuahuas,
    Got into our yard while he got out,
    And he was fine with it.
    And each time we introduce him to a PUPPY,
    He plays with it,
    He’s intrigued,
    Of course,
    But has fun with the dog, and doesn’t dare attack it.

  5. You are reading the test results incorrectly. The higher the score the better the breed is able to handle the situations without showing aggression, strong avoidance or panic.

    This is from their website: The ATTS Temperament Test focuses on and measures different aspects of temperament such as stability, shyness, aggressiveness, and friendliness as well as the dog’s instinct for protectiveness towards its handler and/or self-preservation in the face of a threat.

  6. First I want to say that I have owned several of these dogs, as well as a doberman/rottie mix and a Chow. People told me I was CRAZY for getting each of them. I NEVER ONCE had a problem from ANY fo the breeds! They were always well behaved and loving. Next, I would like to say that as a retired medic we saw more bites from small dogs, There were a few over the years of the larger breeds, but something always came out later about the story, such as a kid that had repeatedly teased and hit a dog over the years that hit it on a day that that the dog had had surgery,trying to break up a fight between two dogs that was started by the smaller dog,etc. As for attacks on public servicemen that go into homes, it again, is usually smaller dogs. Although I personally have nothing against the breed, the chiawawa is at the top of that list.
    It IS all in how the dog is raised and treated. It is the same as children to a degree, if they are raised in a turmoiltuous atmosphere, with anger and abuse, they will learn to do so in return. There are always isolated situations, but there are in ANYTHING! People showing fear, and hatred toward these animals, make it worse. Not only does it come across to the animal when they are around them, but they tell society things that are simply not true, causing others to treat them differently, and a vicious cycle is started.
    As with all things- don’t judge or treat them differerntly when you don’t know them, and/or by the actions of what you’ve heard or been told.

  7. @Lisa. I’ve had dogs my whole life, 34 years . . . from labs, to Rottweilers, Mastiffs and now my Jack Russell. Many different personalities and temperaments . . . not once have any of my dogs gotten into fights. How is it that two of your pit bulls have been in fights? I don’t understand. Keep them on a leash, in the fence or home . . . I’m truly alarmed by your nonchalance regarding the death of your female dog and the fact your current male dog still gets out, still gets attacked or into fights. Honestly if you don’t have the means to keep him in and keep him safe . . . find a different home!

  8. It’s says anything over 80 is good and all these dogs scored above 80 so what are the most vicious dogs? They aren’t listed here.

  9. Has any 1 owned a Tibetian mastiff.. lol all these comments go in vain if u own a tibetian mastiff i own 2 of them and they listen to me my brother and my father only these are very very dangerous dogs and do not allow any 1 to even touch their owners. Great dogs my Dog named Devil is a 6 year old TM and 3 years ago he killed 2 dogs in our street who came and were barking vigorously at him. he jumped above our 10 feet wall and fought with them for hardly 5 minutes and both of the dogs were hurt so badly that they died on spot even he suffered from some wounds. But i will say guys a TM is a dog u should OWN 1ce in a life time to feel proud of a self tempered dog who is exxxxtremely loyal to his owners.

  10. Facts,

    ‘Sergeant Stubby
    AMERICAN PIT BULL TERRIER’ was an American hero, demonstrating the true characteristics of pit bull-type dogs

    By Cory Grimm, U.S. Air Force Veteran

    It wasn’t long ago that I was both a soldier and whatever you call the opposite of a pit bull advocate. It wasn’t that I hated the dogs, just that I – like so many others – heard all the horrible things that the breed was known for and flat out was not interested in testing the validity of the stories. Since then I’ve seen the truth behind a lot of the stigma and have grown to appreciate what the breed is really about.

    Pit bulls are protectors and companions. It’s bred into their DNA to love and protect people, even if that means putting themselves at risk to do so. It’s a trait of the breed that has been exploited too many times to count, but I’m happy to say that there is one very famous dog that proved that the nature of a pit bull is, and always has been, to keep us safe

  11. Weren’t the Dalmation and German Shepherd also on the list for best dogs for children?

  12. I’ve seen or heard of far more vicious people than vicious dogs, but strangely enough, the vicious people are rarely neutered or put down after even the most brutal attack on a defenceless child or person.

    I’ve personally known or owned many so called “vicious” dog breeds and never yet had any problem with any of them.

    I am of the opinion that our own and indeed all life on Earth’s, greatest threat comes in HUMAN form.
