03/01/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 2/27/17 SAFER ASSESSMENT: 3/1/17 Toy: 1. Minimal interest, dog sniffs toy. Summary: Benji bared teeth while the assessor was attempting to leash him so handling portions of the assessment were omitted. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: 2/28-3/1: When introduced off leash to other dogs in the care center, Benji is nervous and does not approach. 3/2: Benji will approach other dogs to briefly greet before going off to explore the yard. 3/8: Benji offers a few sniffs to other dogs, though mostly seeks handler attention. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 2/27/17 During his initial medical exam Benji snapped and would not allow handling. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Benji so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. In the care center, he displays a low level of activity. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13)Due to how uncomfortable Benji is currently with touch and novel stimuli, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Benji has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has allowed only minimal handling since intake. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification (force-free, positive reinforcement-based) and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Benji has attempted to bite during his stay in our care centers when uncomfortable; guidance from a professional trainer/behaviorist is recommended to assess behavior after decompression in a new home environment. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing or exposing Benji to new and unfamiliar situations.)
