Can somebody give an outline of all the "stations" done to get a TT from
the American Temperament Test Society (ATTS).  If I remember right, there
are 9.  What are they?

I was in this test last summer and if I remember right;
1) friendly stranger talks to to handler.
2) friendly stranger talks to dog.
3) strange noise behind blind, person walks out put down bucket. Dog
must look in bucket.
4) Loud noise (gun firing blanks) behind dog.
5)Umbella openinging in front of dog, must touch it with nose.
6) walking on soft surface, plastic sheet.
7) walking on grate surface, crate laying  down.
8) wierd stranger, making load noises
9) weird stranger turns toward dog raiseing stick above head.
10) weird stranger runs toward dogs hit ground with stick and
yelling.

each breed is judged on its own standard.
This is not a AKC title.

RB.

When I did this with my toy dog they made the dog sit in my lap to respond
to the aggressive stranger
