Recommendations:

- 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
- Become familiar with dog's cues in body language to signal discomfort and monitor their comfort level to prevent overwhelming them in stressful scenarios
- Continue working on desensitization to medical handling in the home with positive reinforcement training (rewarding dog for relaxed bhvrs when being handled). Teach dog to comfortably wear a muzzle for potentially stressful situations such as the vets office
- Continued socialization and positive reinforcement training to build positive associations with other dogs
