Interpretation of Test Scores:

Rebekah scored mostly 3s. She would be good for the average home, whether a first time or second time dog owner. She can be a high-energy dog and may need lots of exercise. She would generally be good with people, other animals, and children. She will need to have structure and follow a consistent schedule at her new home. She will need training but she will do very well at it and learn quickly. Rebekah scored well with Touch Sensitivity but consistent brushing and nail trimming is still highly encouraged. The more she's exposed to these grooming practices, the more she will become desensitized.  Also, ensure that when you go to the vet, bring treats so that you can reinforce that positive experience of being handled by strangers.  Rebekah was very friendly and relaxed during the test and scored very well. 

Other Observations: 

From what we've observed over the weeks, Rebekah is friendly, social, and playful. She plays well with other pups and loves attention from people. When we introduced her to our cat, she was excited and curious but cautious. We do not doubt that Rebekah would warm up to the cat in time. It's safe to say that she may need some time warming up to new people and new situations so it's something to make note of. With proper training and socialization, Rebekah will be a well rounded dog someday.
