09/20/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Gio came into the Care Center as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. Behavior during intake: Gio was very nervous and attempted to bite when being collared. He did not allow handling. During SAFER Gio came into the assessment room nervous and uncomfortable, he continued to give a side eye and was flinching when approaching to pet him. Gio avoided any interaction with the assessor. Not all tactile items were able to be conducted as Gio bared his teeth and lip curled at the assessor when attempting to pet him on the back. He displayed no interest in any of the resource items during this portion of the assessment. Gio does not approach, but instead turns his body to the side and exits. In light of this behavior we feel that placement with a rescue that can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification is the best option at this time. Palygroup: When off leash at the care center, Gio is hesitant to greet the helper dog. He paces around the pen avoiding any interaction with either the handlers or the other dog. When an attempt to leash him at the end of his session, Gio backed away from the handler and barked. He continued to keep his distance from the handlers but when the helper dog was used as a social facilitator he allowed himself to be leashed with little effort.
