BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: EXPERIENCE (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)
Recommendations comments: Due to owner’s report of housebreaking challenges and pet conflict, we recommend an Experienced adopter.
Potential challenges: House soiling
Potential challenges comments: House-soiling: Bodie will need guidance with housetraining. We recommend frequent walks and a regular routine feeding schedule, rewards and praise whenever Bodie eliminates properly outside. Accidents should never be punished as it can damage the human-dog relationship and is likely to make the problem worse.
Comments: Experienced (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially in the behavior outlined)
