ENERGY LEVEL: The owner stated Nike displays a high activity level in the household.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_Place with a New Hope partner- While Nike’s previous owner describes an affectionate, playful dog, he is not thriving in the shelter environment and has had a hard time with handling in the care center. He has generally given clear and protracted warnings and has escalated to threatening behavior. We feel that placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification guidance in a stable home environment will best set Nike up for success in a future adoptive home. 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- Nike has attempted to bite during his 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 Nike to new and unfamiliar situations.
