He does not place his body between you and the toy. Summary: Lucky displayed no concerning behaviors on his assessment, he was social throughout. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Summary MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Date of Initial ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Lucky so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to Lucky’s bite history, we recommend an adult only home. He has shown restraint in the care center and has not demonstrated any warnings of aggression, but as the circumstances and severity of the bites are unknown we recommend an adult only home. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to Lucky’s multiple bite history, we recommend he be placed with a New Hope partner who can provide positive reinforcement, force free training behavior modification under the guidance of an experienced trainer or behaviorist. His behavior should be reevaluated once in an experienced, adult only home. Potential challenges: _X_Multiple-bite history/risk of future aggression (Lucky has a multiple bite history, the circumstances and severity of which are not known. Lucky needs careful behavior modification and management to prevent future bites. We recommend only force-free, reward-based training methods for Lucky.)
