|WYSIWYG Welsh Terriers
|Temperament tests are offered periodically around the country by American Temperament Test Society (ATTS). Handlers and dogs walk through a course where various events happen to test the stability of the dog's temperament. These might include having the dog walk over different surfaces, opening an umbrella suddenly near the dog, and having the dog and handler approached by both friendly and unfriendly "strangers." In each situation the dog’s initial reaction and recovery time are noted by the judges. The ATTS offers the "TT" title for successful completion of the course.
A TT title indicates that a dog is a stable, well-behaved individual. Many animal therapy groups require that dogs gain temperament titles before they may become therapy animals.
The ATTS will test any purebred dogs and spayed/neutered mixed breeds 18 months of age or older. No prior training is needed to take this test.
|The following Wysiwyg and Baileywyc Welsh Terriers have earned the TT title:
| Agility | Conformation | Earthdog | Obedience | Rally Obedience | Tracking
