When off leash with a group of small male and female dogs at the Care Center, Kamillo is social, checking in on the other dogs often as he explores the pen. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 1/28/17: During his medical examination, Kamillo was tense and allowed some handling. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to Kamillo bite history and concerns showed in the care center, we feel that he will be best set up to succeed through placement with a New Hope partner. We recommend only positive reinforcement-based, force-free training for Kamillo as aversive methods are likely to heighten his fear and increase aggression. Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding: Kamillo is reported to growl and snap over food. He should be left alone while eating, and should be taught the cue “drop” and other trade up games so Kamillo learns that dropping food or having people around while he is eating is rewarding. Behavior modification protocols for food guarding behavior can be found on aspcapro.org _X_Multiple-bite history/risk of future aggression
