DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 4/26/17
During her initial medical exam, Cani was very active and allowed handling.
Cani’s previous owner reported that she has a very high activity level, which she has also demonstrated in the care center. During her assessment, she jumped up on the asssessor in a social manner. She is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
_X_Basic manners/Poor impulse control: It is recommended that default behaviors such as “Leave it”, “Sit/Stay”, “Down” are reinforced to substitute any frustration and teach her to control her impulses instead of simply reacting; proper management is also advised. Force-free, reward based training only is recommended.
