03/07/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Sandy came into our center as an owner surrender citing moving issues. It is reported Sandy has been around children ranging from toddlers to teens that come to visit at the house, would sniff and slowly approach them. Behavior around cats is unknown. It is reported Sandy isn’t bothered if owner takes Food, Toys, or Treats from her mouth, no one besides owner has ever attempted this. Owner reports Sandy is shy around strangers but will warm up with time. Owner states Sandy is housebroken and will wait to go until owner comes home. Owner reports Sandy has been destructive towards furniture when left alone in the home. During intake, Sandy was nervous and tense, would not allow counselor to approach, she would move away and avoid counselor, therefore owner had to collar and scan. Sandy walked very well on leash for her relief walk, but was very frightened of any sudden noises or moves. She entered SAFER assessment room tail tucked, body low, but quicky warmed up and leaned against staff for attention. Sandy held gaze for three full seconds during Look item, relaxed. She leaned into assessor during Sensitivity item, ears neutral. Sandy followed at the end of the leash for Tag game, became uncomfortable at the last pass and spun body away, but approached assessor at end of game. She did not pull her paw back on both Squeeze attempts. She did not approach the helper dog, turned to side and attempted to exit. The Behavior Team feels Sandy would do well with an Experienced adopter. She will initially benefit from a calm, quiet, structured environment so she can relax and know what to expect. Sandy may do best with a slow approach/slow introduction when meeting her new adopters. Sandy may benefit from crate training to decrease the chances of any destruction when left alone in the home. Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. She 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, mouth closed, ears neutral Tag: 2. Dog follows at the end of the leash, spins away from hand on last pass. Squeeze 1/ 2 : 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are back. Toy 1. No interest. Dog – dog 2. Dog does not approach the helper dog. Turns body to side in relation to other dog, and exits.
03/08/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with other dogs, Sandy avoids approching the gate and exhibits a fearful body posture, so the helper dog was let in but kept on leash to allow her to greet at her own pace however she does not interact at all.
