DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
When off leash at the Care Center, Prince is reactive when greeting novel dogs and displays low sociability by immediately jumping on the other dog’s back. According to Prince’s previous guardian, Prince has not been around other dogs. The Behavior Department recommends that Prince be the only resident dog at this time.
4/16: Prince displays high energy and a stiff body and barks at the novel female dog through the gate. He ignores the handler’s correctors and when he stopped barking, he rushes in and immediately mounts and jumps on the back of the greeter dog. They are separated shortly afterwards.
4/18: Prince begins to bark and muzzle punch the gate when greeting a novel male dog. Once in the pen, Prince immediately lunges on the other dog’s back. The session is ended.
During his medical examination, Prince was friendly and active, he allowed all handling.
We have no history on Prince so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (Suitable for an adopter with a previous amount of dog experience)
_X_Single-dog home/Recommend no dog parks (Due to Prince’s reactivity towards other dogs, it is recommended that he be the only dog in the home at this time. Reward-based, force-free training can be utilized to help reduce Prince’s reactivity and help his associate other dogs with things he enjoys, like toys or treats.)
