There were differences in behaviour between dogs that passed and failed the behavioural test.
There is a negative effect on the success in the behavioural test and the Index value for Stranger Directed Fear, Non-Social Fear and Dog Directed Fear. There is a positive correlation for Trainability. This means that there are indications that the C-BARQ could be used to predict the outcome of the behavioural test. The dogs with lower Index value are more fearful than dogs with higher Index value and dogs with higher Index value have a higher obedience and trainability than dogs with lower Index value. The questions about early experiences, however, did not indicate whether the dog were to pass or to fail the behavioural test. More research on the effect of early experiences on the dog's adult behaviour is needed.
