Summary:: According to Tito's previous owner, Tito did not live with any other dogs in the home but when Tito would see other dogs outside when being taken for a walk, he was always calm and respectful around the other animals.
2/4: When off leash at the Care Center, Tito is introduced to a novel female. Tito becomes sexually motivated and persistently attempt to mount the female and is slow to listen to handler interruptions. He is then separated to the female after he did not listen to her correction and continued to persist.
2/7: Today, Tito was much calmer when greeting a novel female dog. He fixates on her genitals but walks away when the handlers interrupt. He spends the rest of his session exploring the yard.

BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION:: Level 3
