Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Helper Dog:A1039758 EP came into the care center as a stray so we do not have information on her past behaviors in a home. During SAFER EP did not solicit attention, but she was receptive to attention when given. She maintained a relaxed body posture for all handling items, but did not engaged in the tag interaction, and was more interested in sniffing the ground. During the resources portion of the assessment EP was easy to handle when engaged with the food item, allowing the assessor to easily push her out of the food bowl, and she was not interest in the toys or rawhides. During the dog-dog interaction, EP was also not interested in the helper dog, and did not approach. EP did not display any behavioral concerns while in the care center, and has also been tolerant of all handling, so the department feels she can be suitable for an “Average” experienced adopter. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her 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.) She is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1 & 2: 2. Dog quickly pulls back. Food: 1. Dog calmly allows the food to be moved, follows the dish, but does not interfere with the dish’s movement. Dog’s body is soft and loose, eyes soft, tail neutral. She lifts her head when hand is pushed against her cheek. Toy: 1. No interest. Rawhide: 1. No interest. Dog-dog: 2. Dog does not approach the helper dog, and exits.
