Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Toby walks calmly on leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body. He was calm and relaxed during handling. Toby was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. He growled and bit the assess-a-hand during the food bowl test. Toby was not interested in toys or rawhide. He approaches the helper dog with his tail at spine level, ears relaxed, lip long. Toby shows some guarding issues during the food bowl test. He may require positive reinforcement behavior modification to address this food guarding behavior. The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification before placement into a permanent home. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1.
