Eval report

I'm posting an example of the kind of report we get after evals ... with my translations in italics after.

Puppy Evaluation Report By : BessieSheehan Canine Development Center Guiding Eyes for the Blind
Breed/Color/Sex: LBM
DOB: 9/15/2005 www.cdc.guidingeyes..org
Sire: Farrell Dam: Wella
Eval Date: 10/21/2006

Overall score: sniffs , vocal, and scratches when unsure, does better with repeated exposures,Wiggly w/ body handling

Confidence:UP came right up to all 3 x , tight and tense in traffic, (I'm not sure I agree with Bessie here), emptied on walk, (when in doubt, Murphy poops) grates fine, regular stairs fine, OB stairs rushes initially

Noise : good reaction to dumpster banging (One would hope with all the work I've done on that!)
Control factor: needs an attentive handler--scavenges when walking (Translation: In a home with a 5-yr-old, Murph gets more crumbs of real food than he should, and he's looking for it)

Dog reaction: Vocalizing whiney when unsure

Energy: higher energy when the activity and distraction is high

Distraction: high distraction to stuffed dog-- hard to refocus back to midline (Translation: He mauled Fred the stuffed dog quite gleefully)
