QUEENIE has continued to try out anxiety interrupter skills and is progressing nicely. She is getting better at her meet and greets. Seeing less people because of COVID-19 restrictions can make it very exciting when someone new or known is around. Queenie has been doing well with self-regulation. Just a week and a half into December, Queenie showed signs of potential kennel cough and so she went home for an extended holiday. With the extra rest she is raring to go!
