Behavioral Assessment Questionnaire

The questions on the following pages are designed to allow you to describe how your dog has been behaving in the recent past. Studies have shown that most of these questions can be grouped or condensed into a set of seven major behavioral traits or factors that describe most of the variation in canine temperament, and which are relatively consistent across dogs of different sexes, breeds, and ages:

1. Excitability
2. Aggression
3. Fear and Anxiety
4. Separation-related behavior
5. Attachment and Attention-seeking
6. Training and obedience
7. Miscellaneous problems

Please try to answer all of the questions. Only use the “not observed/not applicable” option if you have never observed the dog in the situation described.
