11/09/15 14:26 Basic Information: Ricki is an unaltered 12 year old Cocker Spaniel mix. The owner was given Ricki 10 years and is surrendering Ricki today because of a pet conflict. Ricki would see the vet on a regular basis and has no known health problem or injury. Social Life and Personality: The owner states that Ricki barks and tries to bite children and other dogs. It is unclear if this behavior is all the time or in certain situations. Ricki has not been around cats to know his behavior around them. He is house trained and does not have accidents in the home. He is kept mostly indoors and has a medium activity level. Behavior: The owner states that Ricki will bark and growl when someone touches or removes his food bowl while he is eating. The owner also states that Ricki will also bark and growl when given a bath, having his nails trimmed, when unfamiliar people approach his home and family. Ricki is not bothered when he has bones, treats, or toys removed. He is also not bothered when removed from furniture, held, or restrained. For a Family to Know: Ricki knows the commands sit, come, and stay. He is used to slow leashed walks. He likes to play with stuffed toys. His favorite game is chase. He will use the bathroom on grass and cement. When his family is home he likes to follow them around the home. When he is home alone it is reported that he will destroy household items. If Ricki is let off leash he will run away. He is nervous and will be tense when he hears loud noises such as fireworks or thunder. Admissions Behavior: Ricki did not want to walk with the counselor into the office. He was resisting and pulling the leash away. The counselor was able to place a blanket over Ricki’s body and pick him up. Ricki did not struggle or attempt to bite when picked up. When in the office, he was trembling. When approached slowly, he allowed the counselor to collar him.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Ricki was surrendered to us with a bite history on 11/09/15. It was reported by the owner that Ricki does not like to be around children and will bark at them or try to bite them if around them. On one occasion Ricki had gotten into a fight with one of the dogs he lived with, and when the owner tried to separate the dogs, Ricki redirected onto the owner and bit the owner. In addition, the owner stated that Ricki will bark and growl if someone touches or removes his food bowl while he is eating. Ricki was fearful with tense body language throughout the assessment, but allowed the assessor to conduct the assessment without displaying any signs of aggression. He had stiff and fearful body language on the look and sensitivity tests. He was fearful and unresponsive toward the assessor during the tag interaction and did not engage in play. When on an on leash dog interaction Ricki approached the helper dog with tail at spine level and relaxed body language. Ricki has bitten in the past and guarded his food, and for this reason we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification to address this guarding behavior and can extensively counsel potential adopters before placement into a permanent home. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. His body posture is stiff and fearful; his tail is low and not moving. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, his tail is between his legs, body a bit tense, mouth closed, lip long, ears back, lip lick. Tag: 2. Dog is fearful but unresponsive when touched. Approaches the Assessor when the game ends. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Dog may lick hand. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed or back. Toy 1: No interest. Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, lip long or neutral.
