Do you not have someone at the shelter that mentors and helps with this?
The bonding process is walking the dogs actually. Every dog however is different and not all rules apply.
What you are asking is impossible to answer. Each dog evaluates differently.
Speak with the shelter staff and they will give you guidance for each dog based on behaviour, temperment, breed, specific needs etc.
If the shelter is responsible, and if they detect that you are unsure, then I doubt they will ask you or expect you to take a dog out that requires alot of socialization or behavioural modification.

Also, grooming a dog also creates a bond.
Does this answer your question?
