The Social Test that Cinnamon Passed!
We received a wonderful email from a client and with her permission, it’s being shared with you.
I thought of you the other day and all of a sudden everything made sense. Remember when we were in class, and Bob asked you, why the dogs didn’t get to socialize before or during the class? You said, they didn’t have to touch to be social or near each other and that the dogs need to be used to being in a room with other dogs, without having to play with each other. At the time it just didn’t make sense, as it was so difficult to control Cinnamon as she just wanted to play with all the others in the room, canine or human. Well, we took Cinnamon to be spayed and 4 days later we took her back to the vets office for a check up. We sat in the waiting room, in came a very small dog and its owner who sat down across the room. Cinnamon was sitting in front of Bob, just between his knees. She didn’t move. Then out from one of the exam rooms came a very big Lab, very bouncey, pulling on the owners leash, just trying with all his might to come over to us to say hello. The owner had difficulty controlling the dog. Cinnamon never budged, made no sound, no pulling, just sat there and looked.
I can’t tell you how proud we were. The other owner remarked, now look at that well behaved dog.
Thank you so much for all you have done for us. We are so happy with Cinnamon.
