Breed Tests

Many breeds require a test to ensure that breeding dogs are held to quality standards. The ZTP, WAC, Breed Suitability Test (BST), and other breed standard tests evaluate dogs’ character, conformation, temperament, courage and require health certifications. These tests have a conformation critique, obedience routine, environmental test, and a protection portion; they often have a minimum age requirement as well as a BH requirement. The purpose of the breed tests is to determine whether the dog is up to breed standards. These tests require a great deal of training and preparation. Maximum K9 offers private training sessions, as well as board and train options to help you succeed.
