02/11/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Rex came into our center as an owner surrender citing he is too mouthy and does not listen to commands. While being taken out for a walk, Rex became reactive to the rope being placed around his neck and bit the ACO on the hand, it should be noted Rex had a large wound on his neck at the time of this incident. Rex pulled on leash for his relief walk, and entered the SAFER assessment area energetically, jumping up on handlers. He held gaze for three full seconds during Look item, tail wagging. Rex leaned into assessor during Sensitivity item, mouth closed, body soft. He was distracted and unresponsive during Tag game, focused on other stimuli. Rex moved his body away during first Squeeze attempt, became aroused and required redirection before continuing item on Flank. He had no response to Flank Squeeze. Rex showed minimal interest in Toy. When off leash with other dogs, Rex was social and soliciting play with a social female as well as soliciting attention from human handlers. When greeted by a male through the gate, Rex became over aroused and began to bark and growl. The Behavior Team feels Rex would do best with an Experienced adopter that does not have very young children. He may benefit from obedience classes to learn leash manners as well as not to jump up or mouth. Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body, tail wag. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft, body soft, mouth closed. Tag: 2.

Rex came into our center after a member of the public called the police for a stray dog sitting on a neighbor’s porch and barking towards the door. He was friendly and excited during his initial medical exam, had difficulty staying still and calm for exam. Rex pulled hard on leash for his relief walk. He jumped up on assessor and assistant in the SAFER assessment area. Rex allowed his head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, lip lick, tail wag. He stood still and accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, ears and tail neutral, body relaxed. Rex followed at the end of the leash for Tag game, body soft. He did not pull his paw back during Squeeze attempts, but became uncomfortable and a bit stiff, mouth closed. Rex took Toy away with a loose body, playful. He was neutral towards the helper dog, tail at spine level. The Behavior Team feels Rex would do well with an Experienced owner that does not have very young children. Rex will require daily mental and physical stimulation to positively direct his high energy and enthusiasm. This can be in the forms of daily walks, runs, exercise, play, as well as durable toys such as kongs and nylabones. Rex would benefit from obedience classes to learn leash manners and focus.
Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back, lip lick. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.
