So I did a little test with Paisley today. I've been giving her more and more freedom with more and more success. She is no longer inappropriately chewing and I have confidently left her loose in our home for ever increasing time periods, so today I decided to see how she would react at my workplace--a high school.
I went in to complete some work, getting ready for the school year, and to test her as I wanted her to be a therapy dog but I haven't been confident enough that she wouldn't be a Holy Terror. Well?
She did awesome. She didn't pull on the lead, she took on a "working" attitude, she didn't jump on a single person, I even let her run all over the school building off lead. She never left my side and appropriately greeted every human she met--which happened to be WAY more than I expected.
See, I expected about two people to be there. But the band took a field trip and were scheduled to leave about 3 hours after we got there. The band hall floor was being waxed, so all those students conglomerated in the only open classroom available. The room I was workin in with one other teacher.
So all these students start piling in and Paisley walked around the room and said "hi" politely to everyone. I couldn't have been more proud.
We are definitely doing therapy dog now.
I have to sing her praises because I am THAT proud of my girl! :D
