04/20/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 4/17/17 Intact Male, Stray Other notes: Upon intake Doux was hard barking and lunged at anyone who opened the room door, the finder was able to collar and scan him. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 4/20/17 Summary: Doux continues to display fearful behavior when approached; giving warnings with low growls. When attempts to interact are made, he immediately moves away and attempts to search for an exit. High value treats are offered but he is uncomfortable with any and all forms of approach. He has also allowed minimal handling from his caretakers. Out of concern for her stress levels and his response to restraint, we feel Doux is not a great candidate for a handling assessment at this time. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Doux was surrendered as a stray so his past behavior around dogs is unknown. He has shown little interest in socializing with dogs where here at the Care Center due to his anxiety when in the play pens. Doux avoids greeting a novel female dog. He runs away from her, tucking his tail, and anxiously paws at the gate. Introductions to other dogs should be conducted slowly and under supervision until his behavior towards other dogs can be further addresses once Doux has decompressed from the shelter environment. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 4/17/17 During his medical examination, Doux was nervous and very stressed, muzzle was needed for handling.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner-Doux has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has allowed only minimal handling since intake. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification (force-free, positive reinforcement-based) and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home. We recommend only force-free, reward-based training methods as more aversive techniques will likely increase fear and increase the risk of aggression. Potential challenges: _X_Handling/touch sensitivity: Doux has been noted to become uncomfortable with handling and is easily startled. It is important to always go slow and give Doux the option to walk away from any social interaction. Doux should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Doux’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Doux would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings. _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Reactivity towards other humans was noted upon intake (lunging, growling). Because this appears to present a challenge inside of the care centers, guidance from a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly advised to assess this behavior and modify/manage as needed.
