01/24/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 1/20/17 Unaltered Male, Stray Other notes: Upon intake, TicTac backed away from the counselor and growled when placed in the cage. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 1/23/2017 Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted, body a bit tense. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, lip long, lip lick, mouth closed, body neutral Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1 / 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed Toy: 1. Minimal interest in Toy, dog sniffs, then turns away. Summary: TicTac hard stared from inside kennel, low growl. He allowed all handling with a slow approach. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: 1/22: When introduced off leash to other dogs in the care center, TicTac is nervous and turns his head away from face-to-face greeting. He sniffs the rear of the female greeter dog. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 1/20/17 During his initial medical exam Tictac was nervous and snapped. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to TicTac’s discomfort with handling and reluctance to interact without a very slow approach, we recommend an adult-only home at this time. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: While TicTac does allow handling with a slow, gentle approach, he takes a considerable amount of time to warm up and has offered a number of distance-increasing and warning behaviors when handled. We therefore feel that placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification and in-depth counseling before placement into a new home will best set TicTac up for success. We recommend only force-free, reward-based training methods for TicTac as more aversive methods are likely to increase fear and the risk of future aggression. Potential challenges (see notes above): _X_Handling/touch sensitivity _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression _X_Kennel presence
