A Little Bit About Me…
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
Details on my behavior are…
|Animal Behavior Saved At: 15-Oct-2017 9:3:10.000|
|Animal Name: Epi||Age: 1 Year 1 Week|
|Tag Number:||Breed: Large Terrier Cross|
|Gender: Female||Spayed / Neutered: No|
|Behavior Assessment Date:||10/15/2017|
|Date of intake:||8-Oct-2017|
|Means of surrender (length of time in previous home):||Stray|
|Date of assessment:||15-Oct-2017|
|Look:||1. Dog leans forward or jumps up to lick the Assessor’s face with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted.|
|Sensitivity:||2. Dog is active and focused on the Assessor and all other stimuli available. Body is soft, likely panting, likely to display high movement between attempts.|
|Tag:||1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Or dog indicates play with huffing, soft ‘popping’ of the body, etc. Dog might jump on Assessor once play begins.|
|Paw squeeze 1:||2. Dog gently places open mouth over the Assessor’s hand without applying pressure.|
|Paw squeeze 2:||2. Dog gently places open mouth over the Assessor’s hand without applying pressure.|
|Flank squeeze 1:||Item not conducted|
|Flank squeeze 2:||Item not conducted|
|Toy:||1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. Dog does not place his/her body between you and the toy.|
|Summary:||Epi exuberantly approached the assessor in the assessment room, jumping up in a social manner. Throughout the assessment she jumped up and mouthed the assessor with mild pressure repeatedly. She displayed a very high level of activity and movement, making her difficult to position, but allowed all handling and remained social.|
|Date of intake:||8-Oct-2017|
|Summary:||Epi was anxious but social.|
|Date of initial:||8-Oct-2017|
|Summary:||Epi had a loose body and was panting.|
|ENERGY LEVEL:||We have no history on Epi so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. In the care center she has been active and enthusiastic. She may have a low threshold for arousal and needs guidance to learn how to appropriately channel that energy when she becomes overstimulated. She will need daily mental and physical stimulation and exercise, and a force-free, positive reinforcement-based training class may help her to learn impulse control and to train desirable behaviors that can be rewarded.|
|BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION:||ADULT ONLY HOME|
|Recommendations:||No children (under 13)|
|Recommendations comments:||No children: Due to the high level of jumping and mouthing Epi displays in the care center, we recommend an adult only home.|
|Potential challenges:||Basic manners/poor impulse control|
|Mouthiness/poor bite inhibition|
|Potential challenges comments:||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.
Social hyperarousal: Epi becomes very excited around people, jumping up and mouthing. She may need positive reinforcement, reward based training to teach her to remain calm in the presence of people and excitement. When she becomes over excited, people should walk away from her.
Mouthiness/poor bite inhibition: While she applies only light pressure, Epi was mouthy throughout the assessment and is quick to put her teeth on skin. This is likely an attention-seeking behavior, but it should be replaced with an alternative behavior as it can frighten people. We recommend never playing with bare hands â€“ always with a toy – and ending play or attention whenever Epi puts teeth on skin. She should be rewarded with attention and treats when she stops and/or when she is seeking attention in alternate ways.
|Suitability With Children:|
