07/08/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Jem came in as a stray, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. It was reported Jem was calm, quiet and friendly with very mellow temperament, she allowed all handling upon intake. During SAFER Jem came into the assessment room calm and quiet, she jumped on the assessor and lick the handler face, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Jem was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment on food item Jem bit the assess-a-hand, toy and rawhide item she showed no interest. Due to food resource guarding, we feel that placement with a rescue who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification is the best option at this time. Look: 1. Dog leans forward or jumps up to lick the Assessor’s face with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted. 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 likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Squeeze 1 & 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are relaxed. Food: 5. Dog tries to bite. Toy: 1. No interest. Rawhide: 1. No interest. Dog-to-dog: When off leash with other dogs, Jem continues to be nervous/anxious in playgroup.
