02/14/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 2/11/17 Unaltered, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 2/14/17 Look:2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is between her legs, body a bit tense with her mouth closed. Tag:1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Or dog indicates play with huffing, soft ‘popping’ of the body, etc. Dog jumps on Assessor once play begins. Squeeze 1& 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Toy: 1.Dog settles down close to chew, will relinquish toy to you. Summary: Spice was a bit wary but becomes friendly and social towards the assessor with a slow approach. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Spice was brought in as a stray so her behavior around other dogs is unknown. When off leash at the Care Center, Spice displays a tense body and a tucked tail. She avoids greeting or interacting with the male helper dog but eventually seeks the handler’s attention. Spice is nervous, displaying a tucked tail as she greets a novel female dog. She only greets her briefly before keeping to herself, exploring the pen. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 2/12/17 During her medical examination, Spice growls and tolerated minimal handling. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience) _X_No young children (under 5): Due to the behavior seen in the care center, we feel that Spice may be intimidated by young children. She needs a slow approach and time to warm up. She should never be forced to interact with new people, and should be allowed to greet and initiate an interaction at her own pace _X_Recommend no dog parks: Due to Spice’s nervousness around other dogs, the Behavior Department recommends that Spice initally not be taken to dog parks until she has had adequate time to decompress from the shelter and her behavior towards other dogs further addressed in a more controlled setting. Reward-based, force-free training can be utilized to help Spice associate dogs with rewards such as toys or treats. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful: Spice is a bit fearful at the care center. It is important to always go slow and give Spice time to adjust. Spice should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling.
