PawsLikeMe creates a complex matching score by combining four core personality quadrants for canine and human and then applying scoring weights based on environmental and special factors combined with pre-filtering based on your specific needs.
The 4 Core Personality Quadrants
The quadrants represent canine personality traits that humans are aligned with, and offer a unique perspective into human/canine compatibility.
Energy measures physical as well as mental energy. A dog with high energy tends to be very motivated and active. A dog with low energy prefers the lazy life and won't go out of his way to keep himself entertained.
Confidence measures the dog's level of security. A dog with high confidence will confront new situations and people with no hesitation. A dog with low confidence will need more guidance and reassurance in their daily life.
Focus measures a dog's ability to concentrate on a given task. A high focus dog is not easily distracted and is well suited for advanced training. A low focus dog is spontaneous in play and easily distracted.
Independence measures a dog's level of affection. A very independent dog is happy with minimal physical contact; a glance or kind word. A dog with low independence thrives on petting, giving kisses, and being in contact.
