Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Helper Dog:A1040847 Blaze previously lived with 2 adults and 2 children, and was reported to be loose and receptive with his family but it was mentioned that Blaze will guard his family from strangers at all times. The owner states Blaze can be tolerant of some friends of the family once he gets to know them. Blaze lived with a cat but he was not receptive to her, and it was mentioned that Blaze does not get along well with the dogs he meets when on walk. Blaze was reported to be house broken and the owner also mentioned that Blaze guards his food and toys and can become reactive towards the broom when his owners were sweeping the floor. At intake it was noted that Blaze was not receptive to introductions and snapped at the counselor when they approached to scan him for a microchip. During SAFER Blaze was sociable and made several attempts to jump onto the assessor lap. He did allow some handling without issue, but became stiff and uncomfortable for the paw handling. During the resources portion of the assessment Blaze became stiff and did not lift his head from the food bowl. He also became stiff and snapped at the assess-a-hand when the toy was removed, but showed no interest in the rawhides. During the dog-dog interaction, blaze had stiff body language and rushed in quickly towards the helper dog. Due to the guarding behaviors seen on SAFER as well as in the previous home, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification to address this guarding behavior and can extensively counsel potential adopters before placement into a permanent home. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1.
