10/20/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Vanilla Ice came in as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake it was reported Vanilla Ice was nervous and barked in the lobby, he was not handled during this time. During SAFER Vanilla Ice came into the assessment room loose and wiggly, he was friendly and social towards the assessor, not all handling items were able to be conducted as Vanilla Ice yelps with his body tense and mouths leash growling and continue to escalate during tag item. During this portion of the assessment on food item Vanilla Ice bites the assess-a-hand when attempting to push his head out of the food bowl, toy item he showed no interest and rawhide item he displayed minimal interest. 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: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 3. Dog is not fearful and is struggling to get away. The dog is not focused and is in constant movement, unconnected to the Assessor. Tag: 4. Dog is yelping and growling while he mouths the rope with tense body language and continues to escalate. Food: 5. Dog bites the assess-a-hand. Toy 1: No interest. Rawhide: 1. Minimal interest in rawhide, dog smells, then turns away. Dog-dog: When off leash with other dogs, Vanilla Ice greets politely and offers correction when the other dog becomes too forward when greeting. He continues to be uncomfortable and will persist in correcting the other dog when they come anywhere near him.
