PUBLIC ACCESS ASSESSMENT TEST

DEMONSTRATE:
 
  • Sitting Politely In Public: This test demonstrates that the dog will allow a friendly stranger to touch it while it is out with its handler. 
  • Appearance For Grooming: This practical test demonstrates that the dog will welcome being groomed and examined and will permit a stranger, such as a veterinarian, groomer, or friend of the owner, to do so. This test also demonstrates the owner’s care, concern and sense of
    responsibility.
  • Walking On A Loose Leash: The dog’s position should leave no doubt that the dog is attentive to the handler and is responding to the handler’s movements and changes of direction. This test demonstrates that the handler is in control of the dog. There must be a right turn, left turn, and about turn, with at least one stop in between and one at the end. The handler may talk to the dog throughout the “walk” to encourage it and may give praise.
PROGRESSION
 
  • Walking Through A Crowd: The dog and handler walk around and pass close to several (at least three) people. This test demonstrates that the dog can move about politely in pedestrian traffic and is under control in public places. 
  • Reaction to Distraction: This test demonstrates that the dog is confident at all times when faced with common distracting situations. The dog may show casual interest and may appear slightly startled. The dog may jump slightly but should not panic and pull at the leash to get away.
  • Reaction to Other Dogs: This test demonstrates that the dog can behave politely around other dogs. Two handlers and their dogs approach each other from a distance of about 15 feet, stop, shake hands and exchange pleasantries, and continue on.
  • Supervised Separation: This test demonstrates that a dog can be left in the presence of a trusted person and will maintain its training and good manners. If the dog continually barks, whines, or howls, it should not be passed. The dog should not pace unnecessarily, should not show signs of agitation.
