Attachment is the profound and enduring emotional bond that exists between two beings that are close to one another. Research has shown that pets and their caretakers can have this type of bond; however, there are different kinds of attachment bonds, called “attachment styles”. The style that your pet has can tell us a lot about your pet, including how your pet views their relationship with you, the type of work your pet might be well suited for, and your pet’s risk for behavioral problems such as separation anxiety or destruction.
Requires: camera (or smart phone with video recording abilities), two people (or one person and a tripod), and an enclosed space
Your pet’s social behavior towards you and strangers can tell you a lot about how your pet sees the world. In addition to giving us insights to your pet’s social preferences, it can tell us the type of work your pet might be suited for, how strangers should interact with your pet, and your pet’s risk for behavioral problems such as fear reactivity.
Requires: camera (or smart phone with video recording abilities), three people (or two people and a tripod), and an enclosed space.
Caution: The sociability test is not suitable for pets with aggression issues.
Your pet’s ability to engage with your socially and under the right conditions, can tell us about your pet’s social cognition, problem-solving ability, and your pet’s social preferences. Better yet, the attentional state test can give us some insight to your pet’s social history.
Requires: camera (or smart phone with video recording abilities), two people (or one person and a tripod), an enclosed space, food/treats, and a shelf or stand that you pet can’t reach

Requires: camera (or smart phone with video recording abilities), two people (or one person and a tripod), an enclosed space, and a variety of toys, food, and scents (preferably two to three different kinds each – we can provide details)
