Summary: Scarlett displayed no behavioral concerns on his assessment. PLAYGROUP: Scarlett was surrendered as a stray so her past behavior around dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Scarlett rushes towards the gate and begins barking at the greeter dog, displaying stiff body language. A muzzle is placed on her. Once in the pen with the male dog, Scarlett displays stiff body language as he greets her but is mostly occupied with trying to remove the muzzle. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 10/22/16 During her intial medica exam Scarlett appeared tense but tolerated all handling. IN-SHELTER BEHAVIOR: 10/26/16 Scarlett’s has displayed dog reactivity in the shelter and during playgroup. Moving her in and out of her kennel and the building has been challenging because of the level arousal she exhibits due to this. Therefore the Behavior Department does not feel she is a suitable candidate for the Adoptions room. Placement should be sought as soon as possible. ENERGY LEVEL: Very high energy level RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience _X_Single-pet home (See playgroup notes) _X_Recommend no dog parks (See playgroup notes) Potential challenges: _X_Basic manners/Poor impulse control (It is recommended that default behaviors such as “Leave it”, “Sit/Stay”, “Down” are reinforced to substitute frustration and teach him to control his impulses instead of simply reacting; proper management is also advised. Force-free, reward based training is recommended.)
