Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. Her body is tense. Summary: Reign was social towards the assessor. She was a bit tense but tolerated handling. PLAYGROUP: When greeting novel dogs at the Care Center, Reign displays stiff body language before jumping towards other dogs’ backs. Reign’s previous guardian reported that she barks at other dogs when she sees them and tries to jump on them. Due to the low sociability Reign has displayed towards other dogs, both in the Care Center and with her previous guardian, the Behavior Department recommends that she be the only resident dog. INTAKE BEHAVIOR 6/17/17 Reign is extremely friendly and jumped on everyone to say hello. Allowed all handling. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 6/18/17 During her initial medical examination, Reign tolerated handling though became uncomfortable upon some handling, displaying appropriate warning signals.
IN SHELTER BEHAVIOR: Since arriving at the Care Center, Reign has displayed a high level of reactvity towards other dogs (lunging, barking, snapping) coming and going from her kennel as well as off-leash in playgroup. Due to safety concerns for both staff and other dogs in the our care, placement needs to be sought as soon as possible. Please see GROUPBEHAVIOR entries for more details. ENERGY LEVEL: His previous owner reports a high activity level, which matches what we have seen in the care center. Reign displayed medium energy and movement throughout assessment. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced adopter, adult-only home _X_ No children (under 13)- Her previous owners describe Reign as a high-energy dog. In the care center she has displayed a medium energy level. She may have a low threshold for arousal and needs guidance to learn how to appropriately channel that energy when she becomes overstimulated. She will need daily mental and physical stimulation and exercise, and a force-free, positive reinforcement-based training class may help her to learn impulse control and to train desirable behaviors that can be rewarded. We feel that an adult-home only will be beneficial at this time. _X_ No cats-Reign has shown an intense focus on cats and as a result poses a potential safety risk for cats. She must not go to a home with resident cats or where she may come into contact with cats. _x_ Single-dog home/Recommend no dog parks: Due to the low sociability Reign has displayed towards other dogs, both in the Care Center and with her previous guardian, the Behavior Department recommends that she be the only resident dog. Rewards-based, force-free training can be utilized to help decrease Reign’s reactivity towards other dogs. Potential challenges: _X_ Basic manners/Poor impulse control – Due to Reign’s high-energy level, and poor basic manners towards strangers/children . It is recommended that default behaviors such as “Leave it”, “Sit/Stay”, “Down” are reinforced to substitute any anxiety and teach her to control her impulses instead of simply reacting; proper management is also advised. Force-free, reward based training only is recommended.

Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When greeting novel dogs at the Care Center, Reign displays stiff body language before jumping towards other dogs’ backs. Reign’s previous guardian reported that she barks at other dogs when she sees them and tries to jump on them. Due to the low sociability Reign has displayed towards other dogs, both in the Care Center and with her previous guardian, the Behavior Department recommends that she be the only resident dog. 6/19: When Reign was introduced to a novel male dog today, she approached the gate with a neutral posture and a slight wag. Within a few seconds, she began to bark at the dog through the gate. An attempt to place a soft muzzle on her was made, but due to her discomfort with handling, we aborted. Another attempt will be made tomorrow. 6/20: As a precaution, a muzzle is placed on Reign before she greets a novel dog. When greeting a novel dog, Reign’s body becomes stiff and she only briefly allows the greeting before lunging towards the other dog’s back. The session is ended.
