DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Allie keeps to herself in a group of calm male and female dogs. When greeting energetic dogs, Allie offers an appropriate warning by low growling, indicating that she does not want to play. According to Allie’s previous owner, Allie has lived with a small dog and every time he approached her she would growl or lunge at him. The Behavior Department believes that Allie would be most comfortable as the only dog in the home. If she is to be placed with other dogs, they should match her calm sociability and be large breed. All introduction should be conducted slowly and under supervision. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR:3/29/17 Observed Behavior – Allie was social and friendly when approached, but skittish when examined. ENERGY LEVEL: Allie has displayed a medium energy level in the care center, playful and active.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (Suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors listed below) _X_Recommend no dog parks (Due to Allie’s owner reporting that Allie would growl and lunge at the small dog in the home along with the uncomfortable behavior displayed while here at the Care Center towards larger dogs, the Behavior Department recommends that Allie not be taken to dog parks. Force-free, reward-based training can be utilized to help Allie associate other dogs with things she enjoys like toys or treats.) Potential challenges: _X_Destructive behavior (Allie is reported to show destructive behavior in the home, though we are not clear on exactly what items she would chew. We are also unaware of what, if any, attempts were made to remedy this behavior but we suggest to future adopters that Rocky will need to be provided with physical and mental stimulation and with a variety of appropriate and engaging chew toys so he can engage in necessary chewing behavior without damage to human objects. We also recommend managing the environment to keep inappropriate items out of her reach.
