Prada's MT Prada was mental tested by Barbro Börjesson in September 2010. Prada was 2 years and 4 months. Barbro started to explain Prada's test by telling how she thinks that "Prada must be very nice and easy dog to own and live with...". And I accept that fully.
According to Barbro, Prada solves all situations because of her good nerves and trust in me and other people. She's also nice working dog with lively, playful character with pretty strong hunting instict and social stuggle. She likes to play with me and other people.
I have the test on DVD and I'm trying to get some videoclips to Internet.
