07/23/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to Ferrari’s jumpy and mouthy behaviors, as well as his low threshold for arousal, we recommend an adult only home. _X_New Hope Only: Due to all noted concerns displayed in a home environment, the behavior department recommends Ferrari be placed with a New Hope placement partner who is able to provide an experienced adult-only foster home. A period of decompression is recommended to allow Ferrari to acclimate comfortably to his new environment; force-free, reward based training only is advised when introducing Ferrari to new and unfamiliar situations. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Ferrari presents with outside of the care centers. Potential challenges: _X_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 him to control his impulses instead of simply reacting; proper management is also advised. Force-free, reward based training only is recommended. _X_Social hyper-arousal: Ferrari has displayed a low threshold for arousal at the care center, quickly becoming mouthy and jumpy when excited. He will need positive reinforcement, force-free training to teach him to remain calm in the presence of excitement, by rewarding him with treats for calm behavior. He should be fed out of puzzle toys and Kongs to give him appropriate outlets to channel his energy. At any time that Ferrari becomes jumpy or mouthy, people should walk away from him and into another room. _X_Mouthiness/Poor bite inhibition: Ferrari was mouthy throughout the assessment and is quick to put his 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 – always with a toy – and ending play or attention whenever Ferrari puts teeth on skin. He should be rewarded with attention and treats when he stops and/or when he is seeking attention in alternate ways. _X_Leash-biting: Ferrari is quick to grab and chew on the leash. While walking Ferrari, he should be rewarded with treats for not having the leash in his mouth. He can be given something to carry in his mouth, such as a toy or ball, so that he cannot grab the leash. People should never attempt to play tug with him with
