Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Helper Dog: A1046608 Koukouni came in as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. During SAFER Koukouni came into the assessment room calm, not all handling items were able to be conducted as Koukouni tries to bite the assessor on sensitivity item. He displayed no interest in any of the resource items during this portion of the assessment. When on leash for a dog interaction with another dog on leash Koukouni does not approach, but instead turns his body to the side and exits. In light of this behavior we feel that placement with a rescue who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification is the best option at this time. Food: 1. No interest Toy 1: No interest. Rawhide: 1. No interest. Dog-dog: 2. Dog does not approach the helper dog. Turns body to side in relation to other dog, and exits.
