03/24/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Helper Dog:A1024856 Lexus previously lived with four adults one teen, one child, and three other dogs. Lexus was said to be tolerant of all handling at home including bathing and nail trims, and the owner states she is very sociable with people, and very tolerant as well as playful with children. Lexus has been reported to be intolerant of dogs that attempt to mount her, and has had altercations with the other dogs in the home over this behavior. She was also reported to guard the owners from the other dogs, and she is house broken and can do well in a crate for up to six hours. During SAFER Lexus was sociable, and has a loose body posture with a neutral wag when greeting the assessor. She allowed all handling items without issue, but became stiff and uncomfortable during the tag interaction. During the food item, Lexus was easily pushed out of the food bowl, and she only showed minimal interest in the toys and rawhides. When approaching the helper dog during the dog-dog interaction, Lexus rushed in quickly towards the helper dog with her tail high, and her body stiff. Although Lexus interacts well with people, she became stiff when greeting the helper dog, and has exhibited some concerning behaviors when interacting with the other dogs in her previous home, so the behavior department feels Lexus would be best suited for an experienced adopter with no other dogs. 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 or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 3. Dog repeatedly spins toward the touch with her tail high, ears forward, mouth closed for at least half of the assessment item, and her body stiff. 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 his cheek. Toy: 1. Minimal interest in toy, dog smells, then turns away. Rawhide: 1. Minimal interest in rawhide, dog smells, then turns away. Dog-dog: 3. Dog approaches the helper dog by rushing in with her tail high, stiff body, head tall, and ears erect.
