Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 6/18/17 Unaltered Female, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 6/21/17 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: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed. Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Squeeze 2:1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Toy: 1. Minimal interest, dog sniffs toy. Summary: Terri displayed no concerning behaviors on her assessment. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: An off-leash dog to dog interaction for Terri has not been conducted due to her medical condition. When greeting on leash, she begins to tense up, and lunge forward while vocalizing. When given the opportunity for a fence greeting with the greeter dog, Terri rushes to the fence then freezes with stiff body language. She begins to vocalize and remain stiff with lingering greeting. PLAYGROUP: Summary INTAKE BEHAVIOR: MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 6/18/17 During her initial medical exam, Terri appeared anxious. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Terri so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, she is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) Potential challenges: _X_On-leash reactivity/barrier frustration: At the care center Terri has been observed to react to other dogs on leash, lunging towards them, barking and growling. Terri may need positive reinforcement, reward based training to teach her to look at you rather than other dogs and novel stimuli that may startle her. We recommend a front clip harness or head halter to help manage this behavior.
