DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
Winter was found in a home with another large, male dog, a pit bull mix – they seemed to be living together. When off leash with Winter’s bunkmate, Winter was loose, wiggly, polite and often explored the yard together. Both dogs began to whine and cry when they were separated.
Winter was friendly and allowed all handling.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (Suitable for an adopter with a previous amount of dog experience)
_X_Fearful: Winter was trembling throughout assessment, but allowed handling. She may benefit from a slow approach/slow introduction, as well as going home initially to a calm, quiet, structured environment so she can relax and know what to expect. We advise never forcing any interaction on Winter, force-free reward based training is advised when introducing or exposing her to new and unfamiliar situations.
