|It would take far too long to take the quiz for every pup in our family (including my sisters dogs), so I'm just going to do one for Sandy, Sweeney, and Lilo.
OBM - Sentry
Your dog is an Organised, Beta and Medium Activity type which we call the Sentry. The Organised (O) factor motivates territoriality and the need to control its environment. Sentries can easily switch from dominant to submissive strategies due to the Beta (B) social status factor. The Medium (M) energy factor means they will defend and control modest areas.
SGH - Investigator
Your dog is an Spontaneous, Gamma and High Activity type which we call the Investigator. The Investigator is a loveable, submissive, funny, even silly character that is happiest when obeying its leader or involved in freeform activity. The Investigator makes a great pet for active people. They are High (H) energy dogs that need exercise and love regular walks.
(actually sounds dead on, bol!)
OAH - Commando
Your dog is an Organised, Alpha and High Activity type which we call the Commando. The Commando is the most forceful, eye catching yet restrained character. It needs to work and will be on the go all day long. It sees the big picture and is most comfortable and effective working in a team. The Commando is calm, yet energetic maintaining focus on the team leader and the task at hand.
(admittedly, I answered some of those thinking of her when she was a bit younger - but it's still accurate even though she has calmed down a bit in her old age)
Now, the next one... I would say I'm a combination of The Soul Mate and The Expert.
The Soul Mate: Loving, attentive, and empathetic towards their dogs, true Soul Mates value the deep-feeling connections they develop with their pets. Soul Mates are always thinking of their pets’ safety and wellbeing, and a Soul Mate’s dog is always very well taken care of. Soul Mates are also known to take their dogs on many trips, adventures, and outings. As a result, their dogs are usually very well socialized.
The Expert: Experts believe that the best way to keep their dogs safe and happy is to learn everything they can about owning a dog, training, and their specific breed or mix. An Expert will do extensive research before purchasing or adopting a dog. They are often extremely intelligent, with a sharp wit and an excellent sense of humor. They thrive on learning, and make sure their dogs do too. Experts will have their dogs enrolled in obedience, agility, and training classes.
ETA: I think I have a touch of angel in me, too. After all, I've been known to take in strays and unwanted rodents (Noble was a stray, Buttercup was an unwanted rodent) and will probably do it again. The only thing that threw me off was the tolerating naughty antics. I can't stand naughty behavior.
