I called Nino this afternoon to hear how Emma is doing. The K9 Academy runs a doggie daycare and during rest times the dogs have crates they rest in. Nino told me he wanted to rest Emma in a crate in the room with the daycare dogs so she could get comfortable with all the dogs playing around her.
I thought that would be a great idea but she must not have. She is such a little monster and she acted like a beast whenever any dog came near her crate. She will never make friends that way! It is a shame because outside of her anxiety she is a super sweet dog.
I think it is a little funny because Emma is now hanging out in Nino’s office. She is having to learn to deal with dogs coming in and out and that can only be a good thing. I’m sure she is happy as a clam hanging out with Nino and not having to save to world from all of those horrible dogs. But, seriously, what a stinker!
Emma was becoming really possessive about her crate at home too. I would understand it more if anyone bothered her crate but no one did. She was just being a brat.
