03/12/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Katty came to us as a stray; so we do not have any behavior information other than what has been observed in the shelter. Katty was very interested in interacting with the assessor when entering the behavior room with soft body language. She allowed the assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items while maintaining her soft body language. Katty did not engage in play but followed the assessor at the end of the leash with soft body language during the tag interaction. When on an on-leash dog interaction Rosey approached the helper dog with confident body language. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her ears are back, her tail is down, and she has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed for a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Toy: 1. Minimal interest. Dog smells, licks and mouths, then walks away. Dog – dog 2. Dog approaches the helper dog, body soft, tail well above spine level, ears forward.
03/13/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Katty appears to have had minimal socialization with other dogs. She has shown both discomfort and signs that she is interested in engaging in play but is quickly overwhelmed and will demonstrate distance increasing behaviors like growling. Due to her behavior in playgroup, the Behavior Department feels that Katty would be most comfortable in a home with either no other dogs or male dogs with a calm temperament and gentle play style. We also feel that Katty would benefit from positive dog-dog socialization sessions supervised by a certified trainer or behaviorist. When off leash with other dogs, Katty initially avoids greeting but does so after a little coaxing by the handler. Once inside the pen, her hackles are raised and she keeps her distance from the helper dog. 3/16 update: Katty was more energetic and engaged today. She solicited and play gently with another female dog with play bows, bounces and some chase play. 3/17 update: Katty greeted the helper dog at the gate with a low head and low body posture. When the dog was let in, she would solicit play but became nervous and would run away when the other dog reciprocate her solicitations. She was allowed to meet a second dog after the helper dog was brought back. She greeted the dog with a stiff body, high tail and growling. We did not open the gate due to this behavior
