A2123106Thursday, 04 February, 2021Pickle is a bit anxious/scared. I'd maybe even say high strung. He is friendly, though, and is easy to take out. He goes back in fine so far. Seems to be dog friendly; he walks well, but he does get sudden zoomies, especially if he's just pooped, so hang on to the leash tight. Thursday, 04 February, 2021 5:53PMBehavior

A2123106Wednesday, 10 February, 202102/10/21 12:11 Pickle walks terrible on the leash as he consistently pulls and chockes himself. If he sees another dog he will tug even harder and run full speed toward it even on leash. When initially leashing him he is pretty strong for being skinny so as soon as the run door was cracked open he forced himsel fout of the run. Returning to run can be difficult as he can redirect depending on how crazy the dogs in the kennel next to his are acting. F.M.Wednesday, 10 February, 2021 12:15PMBehavior

A2123106Sunday, 01 August, 20218/1-Was sitting at the front of the kennel when I approached with neutral body language. Readily came out of the cage and walked nicely on leash down the hall (all other dogs were sectioned off on the other side of their housing at the time). Walked well on leash to the office and readily ate treats during this time. Once in the office, readily explored and solicited attention. Not much interest in toys, but loved all treats. Knew the sit and paw cues. Began working on a hand target and "let's go." Did great with both of these and readily engaged with me. Solicited attention on/off throughout session, but also relaxed near me and the window (laid down calmly with relaxed BL). Calmly watched a few cats pass the window during this time. No issues walking him past the other dogs when going back to his kennel. Readily went into the cage and sate while I took his leash off. Treated throughout this process.

A2123106Sunday, 08 August, 202108/08/21 13:04 I spent some time with Pickle today to check in and also to give him a break from his kennel. When I approached the kennel he was jumping and barking with body tense, focused, pupils dilated. I offered a treat when he had 4 paws on the ground and he took it readily. He then sat and allowed me to open the door and leash him easily. He walked quickly down the row, but no interest in the other dogs. Once outside he sniffed around and offered some check ins for treats. In the office he sniffed around but quickly came over and solicited some attention. He seemed to enjoy the petting and after a few minutes I tried to engage him in play. He was uninterested. He then began trying to hump me. He was persistent for a few minutes and I just moved and ignored him so as not to engage. Once he lost interest I gave him an enrichment item (box stuffed with treats). He readily engaged with this until all of the treats were out. We then worked on a hand target. He did okay with this, but it needs some more work to be a reilable behavior. He does offer a nice sit frequently and will also offer both paws when cued. After this he rested for a while comfortably (laying down, hips rolled, head down, body soft). When taking him back to his cage we walked outside. He urinated for me which I reinforced with a treat. He walked nicely back, but when we got to the run I noted that his BL became more stressed and aroused (body more tense, weight shifted forward, pupils dilated, able to engage less). Once in his cage I could tell that he was already stressed due to more signifcant of the above noted signals. Allowed me to unleash without issue and I tossed a few treats to the back of the cage as I was exiting. JJSunday, 08 August, 2021 1:13PMBehavior
A2123106Monday, 09 August, 202108/09/21 17:10 I noted on my walk throughs doing C4C/Q today that Pickle seemed more stressed IK than he had last week. In the AM he had painted his cage with feces and was displaying frequent stereotyped beahviors (spinning on the ground, jumping, spinning and jumping). He would breifly stop to take treats, but BL was still stressed (excessive panting, vigilant, unable to relax or be still, pupils dilated, unable to engage for an extended period). I also noted similar behaviors during my rounds in the afternoon. Towards the middle of the afternoon I went to get him to bring him to the office for a session. He jumped up frequently as I was going to open the door and I waited for 4 paws on the ground before opening and leashing. Once leashed Pickle headed for the door. I did not note any reactive type behaviors towards the other dogs. Once in the hallway, I was able to pause and he sat and hand targeted for treats. We then walked to the outside door and walked outside to the office. He urinated on the way to the office, but was otherwise uninterested and/or unable to engage. Once inthe office he quickly solicited attention. Like yesterday, he did attempt to hump me several times, but I redirected him to alternative, incompatible behaviors and then gave him something to do and this ceased. Throughout the session we did small bouts of hand targeting, sitting, and shaking for treats, interspersed with small bits of attention and quiet time. Pickle relaxed nicely in the office and slept and seemed comfortable for some time. On the walk back to his kennel he offered lots of check ins and slack in the leash. He also urinated which I reinforced. Once at the door to the aisle where his cage is, I paused as I noted more alert BL (ears perked forward, body more tense, more vigilant). We did a sit and a hand target which he readily did. He walked down the aisle without any reactive type behavior towards the other dogs, however, as soon as he was in his cage, unleashed, and the door closed, he began spinning again. I was able to interrupt and redirect, but only briefly. JJMonday, 09 August, 2021 5:18PMBehavior

A2123106Sunday, 15 August, 20218/12-Pickle spent the majority of his day in an old viewing room that was modified to a break room for the day. On each walk through that I did I noted that he was resting comfortably on the blankets in the corner or was standing/sitting with neutral BL watching people pass. I did not recieve any complaints from staff and had other staff members note that they also observed neutral-relaxed behavior from him throughout the day. Moved back to his kennel at the end of the day.JJSunday, 15 August, 2021 10:8AMBehavior
A2123106Monday, 16 August, 202108/16/21 12:09 Yesterday John noted that he had been having issues with Pickle mounting him while walking and noted that this was a fairly new issue. I noted that I had just started having issues with this recently too and have been attributing it to increased stress and frustration and a possible coping mechanisim for dealing with this. Due to this I took Pickle on a walk soon after arriving this AM and let him relax in the office for most of the AM. I did note that he still occasionally attemtped to mount me, but that he was less intense about it and offered more appropriate, incompatiable behavior more quickly. I reinforced these heavily and noted that by then end he was no longer do this. This could be due to a reduction in stress and/or due to alternative reinforcement of the incompatiable behaviors. While in the office he spent time self entertaining with a soft, squeaky toy, interacting with a stuffed kong, resting comfortably on the blankets or by my chair, soliciting attention, and engaging in training (knows sit and paw cues, WIP on hand target). He walked well both to and from the kennel and once back in his kennel, readily engaged with a few enrichment items waiting for him (PB/wet food frisbee and wet food kong). Will continue to monitor throughout the day and talk with John about his interactions with Pickle in order to recommend the best possible plan. JJMonday, 16 August, 2021 12:15PMBehavior
A2123106Wednesday, 18 August, 202108/18/21 14:33 I walked Pickle first thing this morning to provide him with a chance to eliminate outside and then to give him a break from the kennel and in the office for a while. He kept 4 paws on the ground for me to leash him, but the dog next to him was jumping and he was spinning and watching him do this while I leashed. Unable to redirect with treats likely due to threshold being exceeded and stress and frustration high. Once out of the kennel he walked well down the aisle and did great while walking outside. He did not defecate, but did urinate on the walk to the office. Once in the office he quickly solicited attention and then went and laid down on the blankets. Throughout the session he spent time soliciting attention and then resting either next to my chair or on the blankets. He also spent a large chunk of time sleeping in these areas. He attempted to hump me once during the session, but quickly stopped when I took away attention and offered a sit instead. I reinforced this with lots of attention. Readily engaged for treats and offered both sit and paws when cued (also sit when not cued to do so). He walked well back to the kennel and offered lots of eye contact throughout. No issues going back into the kennel or unleashing, but did note changes in BL from relaxed-neutral to aroused when walking down the aisle and going back into his kennel.
