Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Dorchester was difficult to remove from his kennel grabbing at the leash. Once he was out pulls a bit on leash. He was uncomfortable with handling, he froze and turned quickly toward the assessor hand while he was growling. Dorchester growled and snapped at the assess-a-hand during the food bowl, toy and rawhide test. Dorchester shows some guarding issues during the handling, food bowl, toys and rawhide test. Dorchester was a bit difficult to place back in his kennel he tries to grab at the leash. The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification before placement into a permanent home. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 5. Dog freezes, growls and tries to bite. Food: 4. Dog growls and snap. Toy: 4.
