View Full Version : Therapy Dog Assessment Monday!

11th December 2010, 09:27 PM
:updte: Hi everyone, I didn't have the time to find the old thread about getting my Belle into therapy dog work, so I made a new one with this update. Monday we're going to Dublin for a final assessment. We've got our rescue remedy, we'll be groomed and ready to go. We'll be charming and entertaining and the best we can be! Wish us luck :biggrin:

I really hope for good news this time for you :grin: All the positive thoughts from the forum will carry you through :) You could do with some good news this week.

You sound more positive and in control this time - start your Rescue Remedy tomorrow, so you will be on top of the world!!

Phew. It's all done. They were so happy to see us, I was surprised that they were so enthusiastic about giving meself and Belle another opportunity. It went really well this time, we went in there more prepared, still a bit nervous though. Belle was a bit 'shy' with the assessment team, but we all had a walk through the hospital and she went up to everyone she saw with a waggy tail and smile. So that was great. We showed them some tricks, they particularly liked her 'speak', in which, she sneezes before 'speaking'. :smile:

They told me they inform us on their decision before Christmas if we have it. So, we'll be waiting with anticipation... knowing that we did our best...

Desrae, it sounds like you did really well, so it's out of your hands now. It will be their loss if they don't accept both of you :rolleyes:

OH that's great Desrae, we were all rooting for you and it sounds much more positive. It's fantastic that you had the visit to the hospital and they could see how Belle reacted to everyone and vice versa.

Let us know as soon as you hear!! We are all on the edge of our seats for you.

Aww you do sound so much more positive!!

I know how rewarding this is - mine aren't PAT dogs but I take them to the nursing home I work at to visit and it's fab!! One lady just hugs and hugs Cass on her lap and beams as Cass "special hugs" her and licks her face!! Barney is great for the quieter people...

Of course some don't like dogs at all - funny comments some times but hey ho!!

Best of luck, fingers crossed for you...xx
