Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Phoenix was returned to us due to behaviors that he was displaying in the home. According to the owner Phoenix is reactive around strangers, his food and is protective of the owner. There was an incident where the owner’s son was attempting to feed Phoenix when Phoenix growled and snapped at the air in response to the son being around his food. It was reported that Phoenix hasn’t spent much time around other dogs as well, but once a poodle jumped over their fence and Phoenix was hard barking and attempted to attack. The owner also said that if you try to touch his food while eating Phoenix will growl, snap and try to bite. When around strangers Phoenix was reported to growl at them and attempt to bite as well. Phoenix pulled very strongly on the leash when walking to the behavior room and seemed to be very high energy. He was a bit difficult to place the collar due to his high energy, but calmed once the collar was on. He allowed the assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items while maintaining soft body language for most of time. He became a bit tense during the first flank attempt, but remained composed and had soft body language on the second. During the toy test Phoenix took it away with soft body language and kept a firm grip as the assessor attempted to take it from him. Due to the information on Phoenix’s behavior from his previous home, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner at this time. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft, soft and loose body, and open mouth. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Squeeze 1: 3. Dog is soft in body and eye, and moves his legs/body so that the Assessor is unable to hold the paw Flank squeeze 1: 2. Dog does not respond at all. Body is a bit tense. Flank squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Toy 1: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy.
01/15/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with other dogs, Phoenix appears to be anxious and has barrier frustration. He demands barks and bare his teeth when greeter dog approaches the gate. He was muzzled and allowed to re-approached the other dog but becomes occupied with getting the muzzle off. 4/5 update: Phoenix was difficult to walk out to the yard due to his reactivity to both dogs and humans in the hall and outside. He was lunging and barking most of the time. Due to this high arousal it was not possible to collar him today. We did a brief fence greeting on leash with the helper dog. Phoenix lunged and hard barked several times and continued to lunge in the direction of the helper dog and hard bark as he was being taking away from the pens.
