05/20/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I do get why this hunk was named Submarine — he’s big and hefty….but I kept referring to him as a tank which would also be appropriate! If I tell you that he must have peed for 5 minutes the moment we were out the door I wouldn’t be exaggerating….he was holding it all for a long time and I could almost hear him sigh in relief. If he were a man we’d joke about him bringing a magazine into the bathroom! This big bruiser of a boy has clearly been well fed, and his coat is clean and groomed. Tail waggy and friendly, we (actually he) got lots of compliments as we walked through the park. He’s pretty good on the leash which, given his size, was a nice surprise. He loves meeting new people, not understanding that some people may not want to be jumped on in an effusive greeting, so his new person will need to teach him to greet others in a more polite manner. He knows how to sit in exchange for a treat which he takes nicely, so should be easy to train with positive reward-based training. Submarines are under water and not really visible, and there is nothing not visible about this hunk — he’s majestic and tail waggy and ready to meet his new family. If you’re a BIG dog person, ask to meet Submarine today.
05/19/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Submarine was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body, low wag. He was calm and relaxed during most of the handling items. During tag, Submarine showed a low threshold for what appears to be sexual arousal and consistently tried to mount the Assessor during the game and was very difficult to distract but did not escalate. He was a bit difficult to push out of the food bowl, but had soft body language. Submarine had minimal interest in toys and no interest in rawhide. Submarine was brought to the care center as a stray and was energetic but playful during intake, eventually calming down and cooperated. During the assessment, he was friendly toward the Assessor but did becoming easily aroused and repeatedly trying to mount the Assessor, taking three attempts to redirect his attention and complete the item. The Behavior Department believes Submarine would do best in an experienced home that understands he will benefit from positive behavioral modification to help correct is mounting behavior. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his 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: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor’s touch and repeatedly attempts tp mount the assessor and is difficult to redirect but does not escalate. Squeeze 1&2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed or back. Food: 2. Dog follows the dish with his tail down, body soft. Dog lifts head after moderate pressure from hand to cheek. Toy: 1. Minimal interest in Toy, dog may smell, then turns away. Rawhide: No interest.
05/20/2015 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with other dogs Submarine greets and is initially not interested in interacting but begins to attempt to mount the helper dog without relenting. 5/21 update: Submarine attempts to mount but will take correction and eventually will engage in some rough, running play.
