Behavior Asilomar: TM - Treatable-Manageable

Recommendations:: No children (under 13)

Recommendations comments:: No children: Due to how fearful Lucky Bunny currently is at the care center, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time.

Potential challenges: : House soiling,Fearful/potential for defensive aggression,On-leash reactivity/barrier frustration

Potential challenges comments:: House soiling: Lucky Bunny is noted to have accidents in the house, and will likely need guidance with house training. We recommend positive reinforcement, reward-based training only. Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Lucky Bunny is very fearful at the care center and has snapped at handlers. It is important to always go slow and give Lucky Bunny the option to walk away from any social interaction. Lucky Bunny should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Lucky Bunny’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Lucky Bunny would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings. On-leash reactivity/barrier frustration: Lucky Bunny is reported to bark at dogs on leash. She may need positive reinforcement, reward based training to teach her to look at you rather than other dogs.
