04/04/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None Neutered male,Stray Other notes: Hermes was friendly upon intake and allowed all handling. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 4/4/17 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Flank squeeze 1: 3. Dog head flips while moving hip away. Flank squeeze 2: 3 Dog head flips while moving hip away. Summary: Hermes appeared uncomfortable with novel touch and stimuli at this time, we recommend a slow approach when attempting to interact with Hermes and allow him to interact at his own pace. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: When off leash with other dogs, Hermes interacts with other small male and female dogs with a neutral posture. He is tolerant of another dog soliciting play with bounces and reciprocates once or twice. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 04/01/17 During his initial medical examination, Hermes was tense and displayed all appropriate warning signals when made uncomfortable. ENERGY LEVEL: Hermes displays a low energy level in the care centers, we cannot be certain of his behavior in a new home environment but recommend he be provided with daily mental and physical stimulation.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience(Suitable for a adopter with some previous dog experience). _X_No young children (under 5): Due to Hermes’ uncomfortability with some novel handling, we feel he may be intimidated by small children at this time. Potential challenges: _X_Handling/touch sensitivity: Hermes has been noted to become uncomfortable with handling at times, especially when a person is reaching over him. It is important to always go slow and give Hermes the option to walk away from any social interaction. Hermes should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Hermes’ choice to approach a new person or thing. Hermes may do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings. _X_Fearful: Hermes may need time to warm up to the handler as he initially presents as a fearful dog, avoiding contact, shying away from direct touch. We recommend allowing Hermes to interact at his own pace, force-free, rewarding based training is advised when introducing his to new/unfamiliar situations.
