Congratulations Michelle and Star! Thanks for the photos, it want to try this with mine but have to find a place close that has the test.

Congratulations. She has shown a real working ability.

We had Alpacas for one of Dude’s tests! I have a video and you can see one of them spitting and growling (a strange low noise) at the dogs. Fun!

Congratulations Star and Michelle! Great photos!

Way to go Team Star. A true all around schnauzer.

This is the video taken of GCH Quasar Evening Star’s temperament test by the American Temperament Society, Inc. at Slippery Rock University in PA. The first two elements is a person greeting me then the second element is a person greeting Star. The third is a person shaking a can full of bolts and then she investigates. Unfortunately we had to video from outside the arena and you can’t hear the sound of the gun (three shots) which echoed in the arena. The judge watches the dogs reactions. It’s O.K. if a dog is startled but does it recoup quickly. Star did so with the gun shots. She was also startled by the umbrella but recouped, walked over plastic and fencing, and lastly stood her ground when the crazy man approached us yelling and pounding a stick on the ground. The judge looks for fear that a dog can not recoup from or an overly aggressive reaction. The Handlers were instructed not to speak to the dog during the test. The Judge told me Star did great demonstrating her solid temperament. I’m so very proud of this girl and my breeding program. Great job Star! πŸ’«πŸ’« ... See MoreSee Less

Travelled to Slippery Rock University in PA to have GCH Quasar Evening Star take the American Temperament Test Society’s temperament test. Star did great and passed each of the elements of the test. And congrats to my good friend Linda Dobbie and GCH Centara Jemma Jewel who also passed this test. There are eight elements to this test consisting of loud noises β€” including gun shots, quick moving objects, odd surfaces to walk over and lastly a crazy man walking towards them screaming and banging a stick on the ground. The dogs must pass all the elements to pass the test. The Judges look for the dogs reactions. I’ll post the video of Star’s Test. Congrats to both these girls Star and Jemma. They did great. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ ... See MoreSee Less

We attended The Potomac Valley Standard Schnauzer Club picnic. In addition an AKC Farm Dog practice run-thru was held. Dogs can earn an AKC Farm Dog title by completing 12 elements. We entered CH Quasar Evening Star who was the only dog to successfully pass all 12 elements. Star demonstrated her true working dog abilities. Many thanks to Pat and Randy Sutton for having this event at their farm/training facility. And not only do they have sheep and a burro β€” check out their prized Texas Longhorns!! Wow!! It was a fun filled day!πŸŽ‰πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸΎπŸΎ Some of the elements are pictured below. ... See MoreSee Less
