DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: 2/23: When introduced off leash to other dogs in the care center, Silverfish is soft and polite when approaching and greeting. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 2/22/17 During his initial medical exam Silverfish allowed all handling and solicited petting. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Silverfish so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for a home with an average amount of dog experience) Potential challenges: _X_ Leash biting: When in a state of arousal or excitement, Silverfish may become mouthy and may bite and tug on the leash. We cannot be certain of whether this behavior will be seen outside a shelter environment, but we caution that adopters watch their fingers if this begins to happen, as Silverfish may accidentally nip fingers that get in the way of an item he is chewing on. We recommend consistent daily exercise and mental stimulation (games, puzzle feeders, etc.) to appropriately direct Silverfish’s energy.
