06/27/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Daphne came into the care center as a stray so we do not have any information on her past behaviors in a home. At intake she was reported to be easy to handle and allowed a counselor to collar her without issue, but during her medical exam she was reported to be intolerant of handling and snapped at a technician. During SAFER Daphne was sociable, and was easily excitable. She allowed the assessor to conduct most handling, but she became uncomfortable with the paw handling and head flipped on the second attempt. During the tag interaction Daphne was playful, and playfully mouthed the leash, but she was easy to redirect her attention from the leash. During the resources portion of the assessment Daphne became stiff and snapped at the assess-a-hand when pushed out of the food bowl. She also became stiff and snapped at the assess-a-hand when the rawhide was taken away. When engaged with the toys, she held a firm grip and had a loose body posture but would not relinquish the item. The department recommends placement with a New Hope partner who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification to address this guarding behavior seen on SAFER and can extensively counsel potential adopters before placement into a permanent home. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Mouths rope but is playful Squeeze 1: 2. Dog quickly pulls back. Squeeze 2: 3. Dog head flips while pulling back paw. Food: 5. Dog snaps at assess-a-hand. Toy: 2. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. Her body is between you and the toy, and she is loose and wiggly. No growling or stiffness. Rawhide: 5. Dog snaps at assess-a-hand. Dog-dog: When off leash with other dogs, Daphne is social and playful. She engages in brief bouts of rough play and will offer appropriate correction. She is a social group greeter dog.
