Yesterday, Kendall and I had to test to be able to renew our Delta Society/Pet Partner Therapy Animal Team registration. The test consists of a skills test and a temperament test. We have to test every two years. I know that Kendall knows her skills, and she has a great temperament, but she does tend to jump up on people when they come toward her acting excited. I was worried that she’d jump up during the test, but she didn’t!! In fact, Kendall and I passed the test with flying colors and earned a Complex rating, the highest rating possible. This allows us to visit in complex environments such as hospitals, waiting rooms, and mental health facilities. Last time we tested we only earned a Predictable rating.
We’re looking forward to continuing our visiting at the assisted living center and finding new challenging opportunities with our new rating. Yay for Kendall!
