The Greater Lincoln Obedience Club will be holding an AKC Temperament Test (ATT) at their club on 9 October. The AKC Temperament Test is a pass/fail, non-competitive test that assesses a dog’s reaction to stimuli frequently encountered in the environment. The test assesses reaction to social stimuli, auditory, visual, and tactile stimuli, proprioceptive (motion) stimuli, and unexpected stimuli. Dogs who pass earn a title similar to the Canine Good Citizen title.
