03/03/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: 03/01/17 Neutered, Owner surrender (3 years in home) Previously lived with: Adults Behavior toward strangers: Lunge and snap Behavior toward children: Unknown Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Unknown Resource guarding: Unknown Bite history: None reported Housetrained: Unknown Energy level/descriptors: Royal likes to play with balls and stuffed toys. Other notes: Royal has lived in the yard of his home and has had limited interactions with people. Upon intake Royal had a tense body and stood in front of his owner when counselor approached. He began to lunge at people in the lobby. SAFER ASSESSMENT: Summary: Royal has remained uncomfortable during his stay at our care centers, tolerating very minimal handling and will attempt to increase distance from handlers at times, displaying all appropriate warning signals. Out of concern for his stress level and handler safety, an assessment will not be preformed at this time and recommend using Royal’s profile as a guideline. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Royal initially ignores the novel female dog. He paces in the pen displays soft and nervous body language. He approaches the novel female slowly, displaying a soft body and quickly sniffs her before continuing to explore the pen. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 03/01/17 During his initial medical examination, Royal growled and lunged, he allowed minimal handling.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to how uncomfortable Royal is currently with touch and novel stimuli, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to all noted concerns displayed in a home environment, the behavior department recommends Royal be placed with a New Hope placement partner who is able to provide an experienced adult-only foster home. A period of decompression is recommended to allow Royal to acclimate comfortably to his new environment; force-free, reward based training only is advised when introducing Royal to new and unfamiliar situations. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Royal presents with outside of the care centers. Potential challenges: _X_Social hyper-arousal: An exaggerated response to stressful “novel” stimuli (the sight of other dogs/humans, direct touch, toy items, food items, etc.) which could potentially leave Royal living in a constant state of stress and agitation. Royal’ may present a low threshold for arousal with rapid escalation as his previous profile notes that he has lived in the yard the majority of his life. Immediate intervention and consultation with a qualified veterinary behaviorist/professional trainer is strongly recommended to aid in addressing this issue to prevent further behavioral concerns that may appear in the future if not treated right away. We recommend only force-free, reward based training when introducing or exposing Royal to new and unfamiliar situations. _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Reactivity towards other humans was noted by the previous owner (lunging, growling). Because this appears to present a challenge outside of the care centers, guidance from a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly advised to assess this behavior and modify/manage as needed. _X_Kennel presence: While we cannot be certain if this behavior will appear in any other contexts, in highly emotionally charged or stressful environments Royal may show behavior similar to what he is currently demonstrating in his kennel (growling, lip curling). We recommend safe and appropriate management of this behavior.
