About This Quiz

All dogs go to heaven, as we know, but they don't all tread the same pathway to get there. All dogs are born with the potential to be good, but some are a little more inclined to be good than others, and some are more slaves to their primitive instincts. After all, they are the descendants of wolves, and that means they have a streak in them that is always ready to run free.

However, just because a dog is born with the inclination to be a little cheeky doesn't mean they will turn out that way. Love, training and a good home can help develop a sassy puppy into a very good dog. Some dogs, however, commit the occasional canine crime because their owners aren't quite setting them straight. These are owners who love their dogs and want to do right by them, but they don't have all the resources or knowledge they need. Perhaps they're short on time, stressed out, or feel cruel when they say no, which confuses the dog about what's allowed and what is not. Happily, these owners can usually fix their situation with some doggie training classes (that are often really owner training), meaning their natural loving kindness and their dog's goodness will do the rest.

Still, some dogs are pretty naughty, and as long as it doesn't go beyond a little light chewing or briefly going AWOL during walkies, that's perfectly harmless. After all, nobody wants a robot dog that never has its own ideas! Still, it's useful to know just how naughty your dog is, so you know if a little training might make their life—and yours—happier.
