The boys were solid and pretty even in their testing as I expected. What they didn't show was their prey drive which is pretty decent generally. So, if I were the tester of this litter then I would advise pretty much ignoring the puppies' prey drive for this testing except to keep in mind that they like most vizslas can be easily distracted. They were very motivated by interaction with people - both with Lianne and at the end when they had to figure out how to come find me. No one was sound sensitive and Quick was the least reactive to touch. The video of the tests are at the You Tube link to the right. You'll hear the others screaming in the background but it was too cold to put puppies not being tested outside but I don't think they were too distracted by the noise. They hear it all of the time!
Terri and her Granddaughter came over on Tues to help weigh them and have a visit.
Also on Tuesday Caren came over to give me her opinion of the boys for a structure evaluation. They weren't very cooperative for stacking so that I could get pictures at the time. I just took some later. They do have minds of their own but at least they are very sweet when the want things their way - sometimes.
