GUCCI has gone out to one of our volunteers who works in an elementary school. We are assessing Gucci to see if she would be interested in working with children. Below is a story her sitter wanted to share about how Gucci is using her special magic with the staff as well as the students at Eric Harvey Elementary School.
“On Monday my office assistant, Mominah, came in and wanted to have a meeting with myself and the principal. We all sat down, and Gucci was next to me and Mominah. Mominah started telling us her grandfather had passed away and was crying. Gucci just put her chin on her knee without me saying anything. It was very comforting for Mominah and made her smile through her tears.”
- Skills being learned: Obedience skills, ‘go sniff’, chin targeting to laps and shoulders, hand signals.
- Recent field trips: Eric Harvey School, Market Mall, EMS PEPP Session.
- Possible behavior challenges: Some cape sensitivity, alert barking.
- Potential career path: AFD
Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Gucci!
