04/09/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Bert came in as a stray surrender so his past behavior in a home is unknown. At intake Bert was reported to be very playful and affectionate. He allowed all handling and sat and gave paw on command. During SAFER Bert was relaxed when interacting with the assessor, but wasn’t very attention seeking. He allowed the assessor to conduct all handling items without issue, and became distracted during the tag interaction. Bert did become stiff during the food item, and would not lift his head from the bowl when pressure was applied to his cheek, but he was easy to handle when engaged with the toys and rawhide items, and did not show any concerning behaviors when the items were removed. The behavior department feels Bert is suitable for an experienced adopter. 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: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (needed coaxing to approach.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2: 2. Dog quickly pulls back. Food: 3. Dog follows the dish, his tail is down, ears are forward. His body is stiff. Dog does not lift his head from the bowl when hand is applied to his cheek. Toy 1: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy. Rawhide: 2. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. His body is between you and the toy or rawhide, and he is loose and wiggly. No growling or stiffness. Dog-dog: When off leash with other dogs, Bert shows interest by doing play bow to other dog, but soon loses interest and begins to wander.
