Are you afraid your dog will bite a visitor? Has your dogs barking at people increased? Has your dog already bitten a person?
Bite Risk Assessment is performed in Judy’s office and is for dogs who have bitten humans where extreme damage has been done. Extreme is defined as a person who needed hospitalization or received two or more punctures.
Following a detailed history, and veterinary check up, Judy will assess the dog’s temperament. Using the Clothier Animal Response Assessment Tool, Judy will then evaluate the dog’s sociability with familiar people, sociability with unfamiliar people, social tolerance, resource guarding, and dog-to-dog relationship (when applicable). The dog’s arousal and resiliency will be scored to support Judy’s recommendations and over all conclusion.
Over the past 18 years Judy has trained thousands of dogs displaying aggression towards humans, as well as adopted and rehabilitated three highly territorial dogs with extensive bite histories. All three successfully earned their Canine Good Citizen Certifications. Judy will personally teach you what your dogs triggers are and if he is at risk to do bodily harm or bite and retreat. She will show you how to manage his behavior to keep him safe, while changing his behavior to prevent a bite.
