03/24/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None Date of Intake 3/12/2017 Unaltered male, stray notes: Butter was soliciting attention from people in a public park. While playing with a 14 year old girl he scratched her hand, which bled. SAFER ASSESSMENT: Date of assessment 3/24/2017 Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag 3. Dog over escalates quickly, jumping hard and mouthing with moderate pressure, does not settle easily Squeeze 1 / 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed Toy 1: 2. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold and shakes, body slightly tense Summary: Butter displayed high energy and movement upon entering assessment room. He jumped up hard on assessor, at times mounting, displaying a low threshold for arousal as he escalated fairly quickly during the tag portion of assessment. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/12/2017 During his initial medical exam, Butter was social and active. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Butter so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. In the care center Butter has been active and enthusiastic, displaying high energy and movement. Butter will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) _X_No young children (under 5) – Butter jumped hard onto assessor as well as mouthed with moderate pressure. He is a large, strong dog and we feel this may be intimidating to young children. Potential challenges: _X_Basic manners/Poor impulse control – When overly aroused during Tag game, Butter jumped up with moderate intensity onto assessor, and did not settle easily afterward. It is recommended that default behaviors such as ‘sit/stay’, ‘down’, and ‘leave it’ are reinforced to substitute any frustration and teach him to control his impusles instead of simply reacting. Force-free, reward based training only is recommended. _X_Mouthiness/Poor bite inhibition – Butter has shown some mouthiness in the care center. This behavior should be extinguished through training alternate behaviors as it can frighten people. We recommend never playing with bare hands – always with a toy – and ending play or attention whenever Butter puts teeth on skin. He should be rewarded with attention and treats when he stops and/or when he is seeking attention in alternate ways. We recommend Butter be trained using positive reinforcement, reward based training to not mouth or jump up.
