05/04/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None Date of intake 5/2/2017 Neutered male, stray Other: Finder was able to place Chip in car to drive to care center. Upon intake, Chip was outside, tense when approached by staff and lunge barked at police while outside. SAFER ASSESSMENT: Date of assessment 5/4/2017 Look: 1. Dog leans forward to lick the Assessor’s face with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is wagging with relaxed body posture, mouth open. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft, playful toward end of game. Dog briefly grabs leash but lets go without direction. Squeeze 1 / 2:1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy 1: 1. Dog will relinquish toy to you, interactively will drop at feet. Summary: Chip displayed no concerning behavior during his assessment. PLAYGROUP: Chip was soft at the gate when greeted by a female; however he was muzzled due to growling and lunging at the gate the day before. He was tolerant, tail wagging and slightly stiff at times when an assertive female would muzzle nudge and tee his shoulders. He didn’t display any reactivity. His muzzle was removed but remained on leash, he was mostly avoidant of the pushy female, who was barking, and he mostly seeks handlers’ attention. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Date of initial 5/2/2017 During his initial medical exam, Chip allowed all handling. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Chip so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. In the care center, Chip displays as a young, enthusiastic, social dog. Chip will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in addition to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm. IN-SHELTER OBSERVATIONS: Chip has been demonstrating barrier reactivity (see Potential Challenges) in the care center. This is unlikely to resolve in a shelter environment and the continued rehearsal of the behavior is not going to help Chip’s behavioral health. We recommend that he move into a stable home environment as quickly as possible.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below) Potential challenges: _X_ On leash reactivity/barrier frustration – At the care center Chip has been observed to react to other dogs and human passerby on leash, lunging upon intake. Chip may need positive reinforcement, reward based training to teach him to look at you rather than other dogs and novel stimuli that may startle him. We recommend a front clip harness or head halter to help manage this behavior. _X_Kennel presence – Chip may hard bark, growl and snap while in kennel. While we cannot be certain if this behavior will appear in any other contexts, in highly emotionally charged or stressful environments. Chip may show behavior similar to what he is currently demonstrating in his kennel. We recommend potential adopters be comfortable managing this behavior and keeping themselves safe in any similar future situations.
