Recommendations: Single-pet home, Recommend no dog parks
_X_ Single-pet home/Recommend no dog parks: Due to the concerning behaviors that Ike has shown during playgroup (see GROUPBEHAVIOR SUMMARY), we feel that Ike should not visit dog parks and be the only resident dog. The Behavior Department recommends that he be socialized in a more controlled setting until his behavior towards other dogs can be further addressed. Reward-based, force-free training can be utilized to help Ike associate dogs with things he enjoys like toys or treats.
