New Therapy Dog

We are very proud of our little Jazz, who passed her Therapy Dog test last evening. This very challenging test evaluates a dog's ability to sit politely for petting; allow touching of ears, feet, etc.; be groomed; walk on a loose lead, including in a crowd and among wheelchairs, walkers, and other medical equipment; sit and down on command; stay; come when called; meeting another dog; reaction to loud noises; working around children; and staying quietly with someone while the owner is out of sight. We're looking forward to Jazz joining Tess in making pet therapy visits.
