At what age was the target behavior first observed? Has the frequency of the target behavior first observed? Has the intensity of the target behavior increased since first observed? Is the behavior predictable? Can you interrupt the behavior verbally Y N How difficult is it to interrupt the behavior? List ways you have attempted to interrupt the behavior and the results of each Add RemoveDo you think you may have contributed to the problem? Please list how?.

Describe the location and extent of any marks, bruises, punctures, tears, etc. that occurred from the dog’s teeth on human skin. (helps determine bite inhibition) You may also note any damage done by claws but note that the damage was not from the teeth.Expectations: How much improvement to make the target behavior acceptable to you and your family? (Please be realistic and flexible) (You might misjudge this at this point and find out, once the behavior begins to improve, that you can live with less improvement than you originally thought. Conversely you may discover that the 50% improvement you thought would be okay is just not working out) For each incident please list:Approximate Date: MM slash DD slash YYYY Location: Who was present? What was happening just before this incident occurred?What did your dog look like just before the incident occurred? Describe Eyes, Ears, Tail and Other Body Postures:A description of the incident itself.What did the dog look like during the incident?What happened immediately after the incident? Was the dog punished or contained? If so, how? The daily environment, the hit list, and the stage all help us with systemic analysis to think about the incidents more clearly and clinically. These allow us to evaluate the contexts in which aggression occurs so we can avoid or to be ready for these instances, also set up an environment carefully so you can show the dog how you want him to behave (manufacture reinforceable behavior).
