09/19/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Max previously lived with two adults and small children. The owner stated Max is very playful towards the children. Owner mentioned he is friendly towards other dogs though does not like cats as he will growl when in sight. He is also noted to become tense when someone touches his food bowl while he is eating. Max is housetrained. Throughout his stay here Max has been sensitive to some touch, specifically towards his back end where he has a mass and some stiffness in hind legs/rear. Max has displayed social behavior towards handlers though he has been observed to become uncomfortable, displaying all appropriate warning signs, when attempting to approach sensitive areas. So not to exacerbate his stress level, the behavior department believes an assessment would be inappropriate at this time due to Max’s health conditions. Placement with a New Hope partner would be most beneficial at this time in order to address underlying medical concerns before assessing behavior in a home environment. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing or exposing Max to new and unfamiliar situations.
09/18/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Max’s previous owner did not report about his history around other dogs. When off leash at the care center, Max keeps to himself in a group of male and female dogs. When a dog greets him for too long, Max displays an appropriate lip curl. The Behavior Department believes that Max would be most comfortable as the only dog in the home but a dog-dog interaction can be conducted to assess Max’s comfort level. 9/18: Max greets the helper dog very briefly but mostly keeps to himself and wanders the pen. 9/21: In a group of calm male and female dogs, Max mostly keeps to himself as he explores the pen. When a dog greets him for too long, Max displays an appropriate lip curl.
