03/02/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 3/1/17 Spayed female, stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 3/2/2017 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her ears are back, her tail is down, and she has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture, mouth closed Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body neutral. Squeeze 1: 2. Dog does not pull back paw, slight lip lick. Toy 1. Dog plays, keeps a soft, gentle grip with loose body. She does not place her body between you and the toy. Summary: Sophie was slightly fearful upon first entering SAFER assessment area, flinching and jumping at sudden loud noises, but became much more comfortable by leaning into assessor for comfort. She may benefit from a slow approach/slow introduction so she can warm up at her own pace. Overall, once relaxed, Sophie was affectionate and gentle. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: When off leash with shy male dogs, Sophie is very polite, playful and offers multiple play bows. When Sophie was greeted by a more playful male dog, she offered a hard correction and began to hide behind handlers, head was low and avoided interaction. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/1/2017 During her initial medical exam, Sophie allowed all handling. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Sophie so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. In the care center she has been a bit timid but affectionate once warmed up. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behavior outlined below) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful – Sophie has shown discomfort with sudden noises and quick movement, head and body initially low. We recommend allowing Sophie to approach at her own pace, and coaxing should include being spoken to gently, interactions and new situations should never be forced. She may benefit initially from a calm, quiet, structured environment. We recommend only force-free, reward based training techniques as more aversive methods are likely to increase fear.
