C-BARQ

Factor Score Key:
A gold star indicates that this dog scored within the good–normal range. Just how good depends on the percentile rank. For most subscales the lower the percentile rank the better. However, for the subscale "Trainability” a higher rank is preferable, while for the subscales "Attachment/Attention-seeking” and "Energy", percentiles in the mid-range (25th–75th percentiles) are generally better than those at either extreme. Excitable dogs (above the 75th percentile for "excitability") are generally more of a problem than calm ones, but very low excitability (below the 5th percentile) may also be problematical.
A red flag indicates that this dog obtained a less favorable score for this subscale than at least 75% of the dogs in the comparison sample.
Two red flags indicate that this dog obtained a less favorable score for this subscale than at least 90% of the dogs in the comparison sample.
INC This indicates an incomplete score. Not enough questions were answered for this subscale to provide an accurate value.

=================================================

So, The Woman tried the Canine Behavioral Assessment and Research Questionnaire on myself today. It appears that my biggest problems are that I like to chase things and roll on smelly things. Not surprising. I live to chase and roll.

The red flag of stranger aggression is because I guard the House. That is what I do. My job is to protect the house from any and all intruders. and I do this by sounding a very loud alarm which discourages anyone from approaching unless they absolutely have to be here. Even then, I must follow the people around to make sure that they don't steal the silverware.

Not that we really have any "silver" silverware, but I practice just in case we might get some someday.

The owner related aggression was an unusual component. I don't really consider myself aggressive toward The Woman and That Guy; it's just that what is mine is mine and what is their's is mine too.

If you want to try the test, go here: http://w3.vet.upenn.edu/cbarq/ . As you can see from comparing myself to Tierce on the Misanthropic Shiba, we are very different dogs of the same breed, but then also, he is an intact young male and I am just becoming a lazy old man.


I Am Shiba. I Would Write More Except that I Need a Nap.

You would score big on that one :)

Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting
to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually
code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
