AGE RESTRICTION
ALL DOGS MUST MEET

History:
- None (transfer in)

Behaviour observed in shelter:
- Social with strangers
- Impulsive, jumps up, mouths
- Pulls on a lead
- Some frustration based leash and barrier reactivity
- Tolerant of medical handling
- Pushy and excitable when greeting other dogs

Recommendations:
- Positive reinforcement training; ignoring excitable behaviours (i.e. jumping) and rewarding calm behaviours (i.e. sitting) to curb impulsive behaviours
- Discourage mouthing by avoiding high arousal games such as tug and wrestling
- Redirect mouthing to an appropriate outlet (e.g. toy, chew)
- EHS classes "Managing Mischief" if needed to help curb impulsive behaviours as well as learn cues
- "Basic O" to teach dog cues and foster the owner/dog bond
- Appropriate crate training, dog daycare, and Thundershirts should separation anxiety occur
- Ample exercise as well as mental stimulation such as clicker training and puzzle feeders to provide challenges and help dog cope with boredom, EHS classes "Brain Busters" and/or further training such as dog sports or nose work should dog require more mental exercise
- Specialized walking gear such as an Easywalker or front clip harness in tandem with classes such as "Hustle Your Walk" should leash manners not improve
- Teach behaviours to manage arousal on leash to prevent leash reactivity, EHS class Leash Reactivity 101 should concerns arise
- Monitor all interactions with other dogs to ensure they remain appropriate, reward positive interactions
