Babies aged 6 to 8 weeks can be objectively checked for fear of loud sounds, pain threshold, nervousness, dominance, the presence or absence of hunting and protective instincts.

For testing puppies, dog breeders recommend using the Campbell comprehensive test, which allows you to fairly accurately identify the characteristics of the dog’s psyche even at such a young age and give advice on the suitability of the animal for certain activities.
