- There are a variety of Good Citizenship tests (see links below) that have been established to determine if your pet has a healthy temperament, as well as specific tests to determine if your pet might make an appropriate assistance or therapy dog. While these tests are a good place to start; few, if any of these test have been effectively validated so that they do not insure that your pet will be safe or free of behavioral problems in these situations. Therefore, make yourself responsible for knowing the risks and warning signs of fear and aggression in your dog and do not place your dog in situations where it might become frightened or cause injury.
