Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 2/7/17 Intact Male, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 2/10/17 Look:2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. 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 likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag:2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (need coaxing to approach.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1: 3. Dog closes mouth, becomes tense and lip licks. Flank Squeeze 1&2: 3. Dog closes mouth, becomes tense and lip licks.: Toy: 5. Dog freezes and growls. Summary: Jay was a bit fearful and anxious towards the assessor; Jay may require positive reinforcement based behavior modification to address any potential guarding concerns. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 2/7/17 During his medical examination, Jay was fearful, tense but allows all handling. PLAYGROUP: Jay was surrendered as a stray so his past behavior around dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Jay was initially nervous and kept to himself with calm male and female dogs. With further playgroup sessions, Jay has displayed more sociability and approaches other dogs. The Behavior Department recommends that Jay be placed with dogs that match his calm sociability. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to the warning signs shown in the care center, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide force free behavior modification to address any potential concerns and underlying anxiety. We cannot be certain if any other behavior is suppressed as a result of this environment. Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding: Jay has been observed to growl over toy resources. It is important to leave Jay alone while he is eating and never to take anything directly from his mouth. When he is asked to drop something he should be traded for an item of equal or higher value, in order to reward Jay for relinquishing the item he has. _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression _X_Anxiety
