08/16/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None Date of intake 8/9/2017 Unaltered male, stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: Date of assessment 8/15/2017 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, leans in with tail wagging and ears back. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture, mouth closed. Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game, indicates play with huffing, soft ‘popping’ of the body, etc.. Squeeze 1 / 2: 2. Dog pulls back paw. Toy 1: 1. Dog playfully engages, keeps a firm grip with paw, body neutral. He does not place his body between you and the toy. Summary: Reinhardt displayed no concerning behavior during his handling assessment. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Reinhardt so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. In the care center, Reinhardt displays as an enthusiastic dog with a medium to high level of energy. He will benefit from daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend daily walks, runs, exercise and play. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially in the behaviors outlined below) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression – Reinhardt has shown some escalated warning behaviors initially in the care center and with the police. It should be noted police reported over-reactive drastic responses that included physical violence when attempting to obtain Reinhardt for transport which may have heavily contributed to his reactions. It is important to make sure Reinhardt stays under threshold and is not pushed to escalate further to a bite. He should not be forced to submit to handling he is not comfortable with. Once comfortable, Reinhardt has been social, interactive, and affectionate in the care center. _X_Kennel presence – While we cannot be certain if this behavior will appear in any other contexts, in highly emotionally charged or stressful environments Reinhardt may show behavior similar to what he demonstrated in his kennel on his first two days in the care center. Force-free, positive reinforcement only is recommended as forceful, aversive techniques may weaken the human-animal bond and may elicit a negative response.
08/17/2017 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with other dogs, Reinhardt was soft, playful and offered multiple play bows to a rowdy and mouthy female. He attempts to mount at times but will respond to corrections.
