Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: 2/15/17 Unaltered Male, Owner Surrender (Unknown how long in previous home) Previously lived with: Adults, children (ages twelve, eleven, seven, and five), a guinea pig, and birds. Behavior toward strangers: Friendly and outgoing Behavior toward children: Relaxed and gentle Behavior toward dogs: Relaxed and playful Behavior toward cats: Unknown with cats, ignored the guinea pig and birds that had free reign of the house. Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: Yes, has bitten a child in the home multiple times and has bitten a dog in the home. These bites broke skin, and in one of the bite incidents he dragged the child to the floor. Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Ozaki is described as friendly and affectionate with a low level of activity. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 2/26/17 Look: 4. Dog holds eye contact while remaining motionless with ears forward. His body is stiff and becomes stiffer as assessment progresses. Summary: Ozaki initially presented as a social dog, approaching the assessor and seeking out attention. During look he became progressively stiffer. Due to his prior bite history and his discomfort during the assessment, the assessment was ended out of concern for his stress and due to safety concerns. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Summary MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Date of Initial ENERGY LEVEL: Ozaki’s previous owner described him as having a low activity level.
IN SHELTER OBSERVATIONS: With continued positive interactions Ozaki has been able to be removed from his kennel and has displayed social behavior towards familiar handlers who he is comfortable with. He has displayed playful behaviors in the presence of familiar handlers. Ozaki has allowed physical touch, though at times will move his body away from the handler when uncomfortable. Ozaki should be introduced to new people at his own pace, and future caretakers of Ozaki should allow him to solict attention at his own accord, and only interact with him at a slow, comfortable pace. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to Ozaki’s bite history with children, we recommend an adult only. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to all noted concerns displayed in a home environment, especially the multiple bites, the behavior department recommends Ozaki be placed with a New Hope placement partner who is able to provide an experienced adult-only foster home. A period of decompression is recommended to allow Ozaki to acclimate comfortably to his new environment; force-free, reward based training only is advised when introducing Ozaki to new and unfamiliar situations. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Ozaki presents with outside of the care centers. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Ozaki has demonstrated in his previous home that he will bite when uncomfortable. Though he initially presents as a social dog, he has a potential to escalate to defensive behavior when threatened. We recommend force free, positive reinforcement training and behavior modification, as well as careful management.) _X_Multiple-bite history/risk of future aggression (Ozaki has a multiple bite history. Ozaki needs careful behavior modification and management to prevent future bites. We recommend only force-free, reward-based training methods for Ozaki as more aversive techniques are likely to increase fear and increase the risk of aggression.)
