05/21/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Tippy came in as an owner surrender but there was no information giving regarding her behavior, so her past behaviors in a home are known. During SAFER Tippy came into the assessment room fearful and unsure about her surroundings, look item she was stiff and fearful with her tail tucked, sensitivity her body was soft, ears relaxed but her tail was tucked, during tag-interaction she was fearful and unresponsive, When both paw squeeze was attempted she didn’t respond. Food item she showed no interest, toy and rawhide item she bared her teeth and snapped at the assess-a-hand with her body tense. Due to these concerns 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’s eyes are averted. Her body posture is stiff and fearful; her tail is low and not moving. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is tucked with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 2.
