02/23/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Marley came into our center as an owner surrender on 2/11/2016. It is reported Marley has lived with 2 adults and is housebroken. He is described as friendly, loves to play with a high activity level. Owner reports Marley knows the commands ‘sit’, ‘lie down’, and ‘give paw’. It is reported by owner that Marley is housebroken. During his initial medical exam, Marley was very wiggly and allowed all handling. He pulled hard on leash for his relief walk, jumped up on the chair upon entering the SAFER assessment area. Marley jumped up hard on assessor during positioning for Look item, but once positioned he held gaze with tail wagging. Marley leaned into assessor during Sensitivity item, tail wagging, mouth closed, ears back. He was distracted and unresponsive during Tag game, focused on other stimuli. Marley jumped on assessor during positioning for Squeeze item, but once positioned did not pull paw back on both attempts. He playfully engaged with Toy, keeping a firm grip with loose body. Marley approached the helper dog at an appropriate pace, tail at spine level, body not stiff. The Behavior Team feels Marley can go to a home with an adopter that has an average amount of dog experience. He would benefit from daily mental and physical stimulation in the forms of walks, runs, exercise, play to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm. Marley would benefit from obedience classes to learn leash manners as well as not to jump up on people and furniture. Look: 1. Dog jumps up during positioning, holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds. Sensitivity: 2. Dog leans in and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, his tail is wagging, , mouth closed, lip long, ears back, lip lick. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, he is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1/2: 1. Dog jumps up during positioning, does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are back. Toy: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip , body loose. He does not place his body between you and the toy. Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, lip neutral.
02/17/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with other dogs, Marley greets with a stiff body but lowers his head, and wiggles his body a bit. He does loosen up once he directly interacts with the helper dog and reciprocates her play solicitations. Marley engages in rowdy, bouncy play with body slams, chase, and paw slaps. 2/18 update: Marley greets with a soft, wiggly body. He engages in rowdy play and is tolerant of a pushy female who’s energy is greater than his. 2/22 update: Marley engages in running/chase play and is tolerant of a high energy dog. He does become a little sexually motivated but responds well to human interruptors.
