So what does this mean about YOUR dog?
Dogs have instincts that are hard wired. The instincts never go away no matter how much training you do. Training DOES give the dog some self control, but if we understand the dog's natural instincts and DRIVES, then we have a better idea about how to train them and what is important to focus on in training.
Also puppies that are instinct or temperament tested BEFORE they are placed can be placed in the most suitable home. If your puppy is not tested by the breeder, then you and the breeder are really guessing at whether a certain puppy is most suited for your home and lifestyle.
