When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Leche is social, checking in on the other small male and female dogs often as he explores the pen. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 2/7/17 During his medical examination, Leche allows petting but will growl with light restraint, show teeth. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to the fear/uncomfortablity behavior displayed in the care center, we cannot fully evaluate Leche and feel that he will be best set up to succeed through placement with a New Hope partner. We recommend only positive reinforcement-based, force-free training for Leche as aversive methods are likely to heighten his fear and increase aggression. Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding: Leche is reported to growl and snap over food. He should be left alone while eating, and should be taught the cue “drop” and other trade up games so Leche learns that dropping food or having people around while he is eating is rewarding. Behavior modification protocols for food guarding behavior can be found on aspcapro.org _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression
