03/16/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Limited profile 3/10/17 Unaltered Female, Stray Previously lived with: 2 adults Behavior toward strangers: Unknown Behavior toward children: Unknown Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Unknown Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Other notes: SAFER ASSESSMENT: 3/15/17 Toy: 1. No interest. Summary: Lyca was not interested with the assessor, she growled and bared her teeth when the handler approached her. Out of concern for her stress level, a handling assessment will not be performed at this time. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: PLAYGROUP: When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Lyca keeps to herself as she wanders in a group of calm dogs. Lyca was surrendered as a stray so her past behavior around dogs is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that Lyca be placed in a home with dogs that match her calm sociability. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/10/17 During her medical examination, Lyca was muzzled, snaps when head manipulated. ENERGY LEVEL: Lyca displays a low activity level in the care center. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to the warning and distance-increasing behaviors shown in the care center, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide force free behavior modification. We recommend only force-free, reward-based training methods as more aversive techniques will likely increase fear and increase the risk of aggression. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Lyca has attempted to snap multiple times during her stay in our care centers when uncomfortable; guidance from a professional trainer/behaviorist is recommended to assess behavior after decompression in a new home environment. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing or exposing Lyca to new and unfamiliar situations.
