05/17/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Echo came into our center as an owner surrender after he bit the landlord that went inside the house to replace the smoke detector. He was friendly, sociable, and interactive when entering the SAFER assessment area. Echo allowed his head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, body relaxed. He stood still and accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, eyes soft and squinty. He followed at the end of the leash, a bit distracted, unresponsive to the touch. Echo did not pull his paw back on both Squeeze attempts. He approached the helper dog at an appropriate pace, tail at spine level. The Behavior Team feels Echo would do well with an Experienced adopter. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog 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. Tag: 2.
