During SAFER Caesar came into the assessment room calm and relaxed, he was friendly, social and sexually motivated towards the assessor. He would consistently mouth the assessor but all handling items were conducted without issue. Caesar was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Caesar was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Due to some concerns with Caesar being wary of male strangers, the behavior department feels he can be suitable for an experience adopter and we recommend introductions are done slowly around men. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds.
