06/09/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Stitch is not thriving in the kennel environment and is showing some deterioration in kennel presence. She remains social with her caretakers outside the kennel, approaching with a loose and wiggly body and jumping in laps. She does avoid some human-instigated contact but is tolerant and responds appropriately with avoidance behaviors (moving away) when uncomfortable. However, her reaction to strangers is stronger, especially when she is in her kennel. She tenses, hard barks, snarls, bares teeth, and lunges when approached in her kennel. Due to these behavioral concerns, we recommend an experienced adopter comfortable with reading dog body language, who can make sure Stitch remains comfortable, and who can help her gain confidence around strangers. Due to her stress level in the kennel and the barrier reactivity she is showing with strangers, it is in her best interest to leave the kennel and move into a stable home environment quickly. 5/25 SAFER assessment: Stitch came into our center as a stray so behaviors in the home are unknown. She growled when approached by staff inside the transport crate, but was leashed easily and walked without further issue. Stitch was friendly and allowed all handling during her initial medical exam. She was sociable upon entering SAFER assessment area. Stitch allowed her head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, tail wagging, relaxed. She stood still and accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, mouth closed, slight lip lick. Stitch was distracted and unresponsive to the touch during Tag game, settled easily at the end. She was uncomfortable during paw Squeeze, lip lick, but tolerated it and did not pull her paw back. Stitch approached the helper dog a bit quickly, tail above spine level, play bowed at the other dog. The Behavior Team feels Stitch will benefit from a slow approach/slow introduction so she can relax and warm up at her own pace. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, tail wagging, mouth closed, ears back, lip lick. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor Squeeze 1 / 2: 2. Uncomfortable but tolerant, lip lick, does not pull back paw Toy 1. No interest. Dog – dog 1. Dog approaches the helper dog a bit quickly, play bows.
05/27/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with other dogs, Stitch over corrected when greeted by a social male. When corrected by human handlers Stitch did respond very well. However as the social male dog turned away; Stitch lunged onto his back. Due to this beahvior and in order to prevent a further escalation – stitch was taken back inside.
