03/22/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Zoey A1105970 KNOWN HISTORY: Limited profile Date of Intake 3/11/2017 Unaltered female, owner surrender (lived in home one year) Previously lived with: a smaller dog Bite history: Zoey was inside her crate and lunged at the other resident dog that walked by, held on to other dog, leaving 3 small punctures that drew blood, small dog was treated at home. Other notes: Zoey was growling and hiding in carrier upon intake. SAFER ASSESSMENT: Date of assessment 3/22/2017 Look: 1. Dog leans forward to lick the Assessor’s face with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted. Sensitivity: 2. Dog displays high energy and movement, shoulder rubbing. Her body is soft, tail wagging, ears back, open mouth pant Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, grabs leash toward end of game, did not settle easily. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are back. Squeeze 2: 2. Dog does not pull back paw, gently places her open mouth over the Assessor’s hand without applying pressure. Toy 2. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. Her body is between you and the toy. No growling or stiffness, required trade up for treat to relinquish. Summary: Zoey jumped up high onto assessor upon entering SAFER assessment area. She displayed a low threshold for arousal, grabbing and tugging leash which required distraction to redirect her focus. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Selective: These dogs can succeed with certain other dogs, but may be more selective or picky. They may dislike certain ‘types’ of dogs or styles of dog play so they may require extra supervision when interacting with other dogs. PLAYGROUP: See GroupBehavior entry for more detailed information. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/12/2017 During her initial medical exam, Zoey was social and allowed all handling, playfully rolled onto back when approached. ENERGY LEVEL: In the care center Zoey has been active and enthusiastic. She may have a low threshold for arousal and need guidance to learn how to appropriately channel that energy when she becomes overstimulated. We recommend only force-free, reward-based training techniques for Zoey.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) _X_No young children (under 5) – Zoey has shown some mouthiness in the care center, as well as appropriate warning of discomfort (growling) when in a highly emotionally charged or stressful environment. We feel these behaviors may intimidate young children. Older, dog savvy children should have an in-depth interaction before considering adoption. _X_Single-pet home: Due to Zoey’s bite and history with a resident dog, we recommend not placing her into a home with other dogs until her behaviors can be followed up on. _X_Recommend no dog parks: Future interactions should be conducted on a one-on-one basis. Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding – Zoey did not relinquish toy easily, requiring a treat as trade up. We cannot be certain whether any guarding or possessive behavior may appear in a home environment. It is important to never take anything directly out of Zoey’s mouth. If she is asked to drop something, she should be traded for an item of equal or higher value, in order to reward Zoey for relinquishing the item she has. _X_Basic manners/Poor impulse control -Zoey jumped high onto assessor with moderate pressure during her assessment. It is recommended that default behaviors such as ‘leave it’, ‘sit/stay’, ‘down’ are reinforced to substitute any frustration and teach her to control her impulses instead of simply reacting. We recommend ONLY force-free, reward-based, positive reinforcement training methods. _X_Mouthiness/Poor bite inhibition – While she applied only light pressure, Zoey was mouthy during Squeeze item of the assessment. This is a behavior that should be extinguished through training alternate behaviors and lack of reward (walking away whenever Zoey’s teeth make contact with skin). We recommend never playing with bare hands – always with a toy. Zoey should be rewarded with attention and treats when she stops and/or she is seeking attention in alternate ways. _X_Leash-biting – Zoey was quick to grab and tug leash when entering the assessment room and during Tag item. We cannot be certain whether similar behavior will be seen in a future home environment. We recommend walking with a chain leash to decrease leash biting behaviors and reward Zoey whenever walking nicely on leash.
