Out of concern for his stress level an assessment will not be attempted at this time. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: According to Koji’s previous owner, Koji has been around other dogs in the past. Owner stated that he will be friendly at first with the other dog but then he will growl start to fight with the other dog, especially if food is involved. Due to Koji’s DOH status, a dog-dog assessment is unable to be conducted at this time. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 4/1/17 During his medical examination, Koji did not allow ENERGY LEVEL: Koji displays a low activity level in the care center.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _x_Single-dog home/Recommend no dog parks (Due to Koji’s previous owner reporting that he may fight with other dogs, the Behavior Department recommends that he be the only dog in the home.) _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to the warning and distance-increasing behaviors shown in the care center, as well as Koji multiple bite history, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide force free behavior modification to address the biting and underlying anxiety. Potential challenges: _X_House soiling: Koji is noted to have occasional accidents in the house, and will likely need guidance with house training. Accidents should never be punished as it can damage the human-dog relationship and is likely to make the problem worse. _X_Resource guarding _X_Handling/touch sensitivity _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Koji gives clear warnings when he is uncomfortable and does seem to choose to avoid or retreat when given the opportunity, but if prevented from moving away there is a potential to escalate to higher-level warning behaviors and possible fear-based aggression. It is important to move slowly with Koji, to build positive associations (treats/toys/praise), and to allow Koji to initiate interactions with new people. He should never be forced to greet or to interact if she is not comfortable and soliciting attention.
