Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Helper dog: A1048716 Anissa came in as a stray, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake Anissa was nervous and growling towards the police, as she got comfortable she became friendly and receptive to human contact. During SAFER Anissa came into the assessment room with loose body posture and excitable, she was friendly and social towards the assessor, she allowed all handling to be conducted without issue. During the resources portion of the assessment on food and rawhide items she bit the assess-a-hand when attempting to remove the items away from her, and toy item she showed no interest. When on leash for a dog interaction with another dog on leash Anissa rushes in with her body tense and tail above spine. In light of this behavior we feel that placement with a rescue who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification is the best option at this time. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Licks hand. Squeeze 2: 2.
