Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 2/9/17 Spayed, Stray Other notes: Upon intake Granola was tense, trembling with her tail tucked and growled when approach by the counselor. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 2/11/17 Summary: When approaching Granola kennel she would bare her teeth and growl. She allows the handler to remove her from her kennel. When entering the assessment room her body posture is low, tail tucked, trembles and lip licks. Granola would avoid eye contact and keep her distance away from the assessor, when attempting to position her for items she would lay down on the ground and tremble.Due to the behavior demonstrated in the shelter the behavior department believes that Granola is not an appropriate candidate for SAFER at this time. A SAFER assessment will not be conducted due to safety and stress level concerns. PLAYGROUP: Granola was surrendered as a stray so her past behavior around dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Granola is nervous and avoids greeting a novel male dog. She keeps to herself as she explores the pen. When the male dog approaches to greet her, Granola displays a head whip and a lip curl, indicating to him that he should move away from her. In a group of calm male and female dogs, Granola continues to keep to herself as she explores the pen. When a dog attempts to greet her, her tail becomes tucked and she walks away. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 2/9/17 During her medical examination, Granola tail was tucked, nervous and growled with restraint. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children _X_Recommend no dog parks: Due to Granola’s nervousness around other dogs, the Behavior Department recommends that she be socialized around other dogs in a more controlled setting. Reward-based, force-free training can be utilized to counter-condition and desensitize Granola to help her associate other dogs with positive experiences, such as toys or treats. _X_Place with a New Hope partner Potential challenges: _X_Fearful: Granola was timid throughout the assessment and did not readily approach or maintain any proximity to the assessor. She needed considerable coaxing to position, and did not seem to warm up to the assessor during the assessment. She was curious and would approach to sniff, but moved away whenever the assessor tried to initiate contact. She also avoided even gentle petting on the back.
