07/29/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Sauvignon came into the care center as a stray, so we do not have any information on his past behaviors in a home. At intake He was reported to be fearful, and growled at the counselor, but was tolerant of handling by another staff member. When approaching Sauvignon in his kennel, his body is fearful, and growls when approached, but he is easily removed and his body language becomes soft. During SAFER Sauvignon was social, and he allowed the assessor to conduct all handling items without issue. During the tag interaction He became stiff and uncomfortable, and mouthed the leash, but he was quick to de-escalate. Sauvignon was not interested in the food item, and when engaged with the toys and rawhides he held a firm grip and became stiff when the assessor attempted to remove the items. Sauvignon appears to be social, but can become uncomfortable with new situations, so a slow approach for introductions is recommended. Due to the concerns seen on the assessment, and in the care center the department recommends an experienced adopter with no children. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, his tail is down, body stiff, mouth closed, lip long, ears back. Tag: 3. Dog responds with his tail high, ears forward, mouth likely closed for at least half of the assessment item, body stiff and mouths the rope. Squeeze 1: 2. Dog quickly pulls back his paw, body a bit tense. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are back. Food: No interest Toy 1: 3. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. His body is stiff. Rawhide: 3. Dog takes rawhide away, keeps a firm hold. His body is stiff.
