Exam Type BEHAVIOR
It was reported that Tank is well behaved, respectful, tolerant, relaxed, and playful with children, but can be rough when interacting due to his size. The owner stated Tank is an outdoor dog that has not been properly house trained and will have accidents often if he is inside the home. It was also mentioned that Tank will bark, dig, and knock over the garbage cans when outdoors. Tank was best described as being playful, pushy, confident, excitable, affectionate, independent, and friendly with a high activity level. During the Intake process Tank was friendly and excitable. He interacted with everyone in a playful manner, and allowed all handling by a counselor. During SAFER Tank was social, but was occasionally more interested in his surroundings. He allowed the assessor to conduct all handling items, but was a bit mouthy (no pressure applied) for some of the handling. During the tag interaction Tank was easily aroused and mouthed the leash, but deescalated quickly. During the resources portion of the assessment Tank could not be pushed out of the food bowl, and took bigger bites with stiff body language. He was not interested in the rawhides, and when the assessor attempted to remove the toy item, he became stiff and snapped at the assess-a-hand. Due to this behavior the department recommends 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 pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 2. Dog repeatedly turns toward the Assessor’s hand, with loose body and open mouth, mouths the hand, but does not apply pressure.
