Ok. So I have researched, chosen and put a deposit down on a puppy. I, however, don't know much about temperament testing. The breeder says she will help me pick when I go to pick up. I have so many things I want to do with this dog I don't really know how to proceed. I have high expectations for this little guy. Agility, therapy, competitive grooming, hiking, etc... Just an all around well rounded dog I guess. I am used to really high drive dogs. (Seriously, my last 2 agility dogs were off the charts!!!) I know a lot of it has to do with training and socialization. My questions are:

1. Is it too much to ask to have a good active dog, and a good therapy dog?
2. What qualities should I look for in a 9 week old pup?
3. Any other input you have...:)

It's not that I don't trust my breeder. She just doesn't seem to place for temperament. (She told me that one buyer had a dream about getting a green collar puppy.) So I figure I better be as prepared as I can, and my last breeder experience has been such a disaster I'm kinda freaking out. Thank you, thank you, thank you.:)
