DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
Cash engages in soft play with male and female dogs of varying sizes but is uncomfortable with dogs that have a rougher or more exuberant play style. His owner cites he “lived with a smaller breed dog and was relaxed with the dog. He enjoyed going to the dog park and played well with other dogs.” The behavior department feels that Cash could succeed in a home with another dog who is playful but gentle and respectful.
3/17: When introduced off leash to male and female dogs, Cash engages in bouts of bouncy play. He offers correction when uncomfortable with overly mouthy or exuberant play.
3/18: Cash interacts with male and female dogs of all sizes. He engages in bouts of bouncy play but offers correction when play becomes more exuberant.
3/19-24: Cash engages in gentle play with other dogs. He offers correction when solicited with rougher play.
3/24: Cash is uncomfortable with interaction and seeks attention from handlers.
During his initial medical exam Cash allowed handling
Cash’s previous owner reports a high activity level, which matches what we have seen in the care center. Cash is a young, enthusiastic, social dog. Cash will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
