The egg challenge is currently a viral challenge that lets you see if your dog has excellent retrieving skills by placing a raw egg in your dog’s mouth. The dog should be able to keep the egg in its mouth without cracking it. If successful, you might consider a career in retrieving for your dog.
Kidding! What this test specifically aims to find out is if your dog has a “soft mouth”. Having a soft mouth is essential in dogs trained to retrieve and return game successfully and without damaging it.

Breeds that were in earlier decades, specifically bred and prized for their excellent retrieving skills.
