ZJ’s temperament test

ZJ, our malinois puppy that we co-own, was at the ABMC Belgian Malinois nationals a few weeks ago.  We always knew he had a solid temperament (confident, secure, stable) but the temperament test would prove he has an interesting quirk.  Part of the temperament test someone opens an umbrella in the dog’s face and makes noise with it.  The dog’s initial reaction isn’t too heavily judged but how they recovered is.  ZJ wasn’t to worried when someone opened the umbrella in his face but he did take the time to line himself up and mark the umbrella.  Of course, everyone had a big laugh over this and the judge even commented that was the first time they’ve seen it happen.
