12/04/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Diuamond previously lived with 3 adults and has been around children reportedly allowing petting and being gentle around them.The previous owner reports that Diuamond was eliminating inside of the house, but we are unaware of what, if any, modification steps were taken to try and address this behavior. We cannot be sure whether this behavior will continue in a home environment, but we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for elimination inside the house should this behavior continue in a home environment. According to the owner Diuamond is trained to attack on command and she will respond to the snapping of fingers or whistling, and when given this command Diuamond will begin to growl and bark if pointed towards someone she will attack. We do not have much information on what Diuamond actually does when she attacks, or if there are any release commands. Diuamond does come to us though with a previous bite history of attacking a police officer when executing a search warrant biting his left calf and thigh multiple times. For this reason the behavior department believes that placement with a rescue that can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification is the best option at this time. During SAFER Diuamond came into the assessment room calm and relaxed, she was friendly and social towards the assessor, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Diuamond joins the game during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Diuamond was easy to handle when engaged with the items. 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. Or dog indicates play with huffing, soft ‘popping’ of the body, etc. Dog jumps on Assessor once play begins. Squeeze 1 & 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Toy: 1. No interest.
12/02/2015 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
