12/12/2015 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with other dogs, Biscuit hard barks and snaps at the other dog when greeting at the gate so she is muzzled. Once in the pen, she is initially distracted by the muzzle but does let the dog approach her briefly. Eventually she becomes uncomfortable and defensive, hard barking at the other dog and when he attempts to re-approach her she will growl and snap at him.
