03/05/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 3/2/17 Unaltered male, Stray Other notes: Tulsa would growl, and did not allow all handling, SAFER ASSESSMENT: 3/4/17 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is open for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 3. Dog responds with his tail high, ears forward, easily aroused, mouth open for at least half of the assessment item, body tense. Flank squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Flank Squeeze 2:1 Dog does not respond at all. Toy 1: No interest. Summary: Tulsa was a bit tense with his tail high throughout his assessment. He allowed all handling. He was receptive to petting, and accepted treats. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Tulsa was surrendered as a stray so his past behavior around dogs is unknown. When greeting a novel female dog, Tulsa immediately becomes stiff and begins barking at the other dog. An attempt was made to place a muzzle on him, but due to his uncomfortable body language – hard staring and becoming stiff- when being handled, a muzzle was not able to safely be placed on him at this time. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/2/17 Tulsa tolerated handling during his initial medical examination. ENERGY LEVEL: Tulsa displays a medium energy level in the care centers
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (Suitable for an adopter with some previous dgo experience). X No children (under 13): Tulsa tolerates limited handling. During the Tag item, Tulsa pulls towards the assessor and becomes a tad bit vocal. He displays a low threshold for arousal as he escalated during the tag portion. Though he recovered well, Tulsa maybe a bit intimidating by children in the home. Tulsa appears to become uncomfortable with up close handling, and will need a slow approach and time to adjust to his new environment. Due to his strength and size, we advise against a home with children at this time. _X_Single-dog home/Recommend no dog parks (Due to Tulsa’s reactivity towards other dogs, the Behavior Department recommends that he not be placed in a home with other dogs or socialized until his behavior towards other dogs can be further investigated once he has adequate time to decompress from the shelter environment.) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Tulsa has been observed to display fearful behavior during his stay at our care centers; at times will avoid interaction and shy away from direct-touch. Tulsa easily startles and is made uncomfortable by loud noises and sudden movement and will display proper warning signals as well as increase distance from anything that may present a threat. We cannot be certain if any other behavior is suppressed as a result of his environment. A period of decompression is advised before introduction or exposure to new and unfamiliar situations. Force-free, reward based training is advised.
