10/21/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Chapo came in as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake it was reported Chapo had tense body language but he allowed all handling. During SAFER Chapo came into the assessment room calm and relaxed, he was not interested with the assessor, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Chapo was distracted during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment on food item Chapo bit the assess-a-hand when attempting to remove his head out of the food bowl, he showed no interest in the toy and rawhide items. 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: 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 between his legs, body tense, mouth closed. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, but a bit distracted. Squeeze 1: 1.
