Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Ace came to us as an owner surrender as the owner is moving to a new location with different family members that are afraid of Ace. According to the owner Ace becomes reactive around strangers and will hard bark, snarl, growl and may lunge. When taking Ace out of his kennel he seemed to be very anxious. As the assessor took Ace out for a relief walk a loud car passed by and startled Ace making him very frantic in his movements but he did not show aggression. Once in the behavior room Ace seemed to be very uncomfortable and did not take any treats that were offered to him. His body language was very tense; he can visibly be seen trembling. When the assessor sat close to Ace, Ace smelled the assessor but looked at him with frozen body language and then curled his lip and growled. Due the behaviors observed the assessor was unable to complete the handling portions of the assessment. Ace showed no interest in the toy, and had relaxed body language when interacting with another dog on leash. We recommend placement with a rescue that can safely manage Ace’s behaviors. Toy 1: No interest. Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, lip neutral.
