Patti Cake “Patti”

Patti Cake  “Patti”

Patti joined our team as a ‘temporary’ work study project at the request of our Vet.  Her original owners had relinquished her and paid for her one-way ticket ‘over the bridge’ claiming she was vicious.   We implemented our ‘these are the rules’ with Patti, establishing what behavior was allowed and what was not.   Over a short period of time, Patti discovered her fear of people and strangers was unwarranted.  She gained confidence as well as trust, by observing the rules and boundaries set in place.   Patti soon earned her permanent position as Preschool Specialist.  Her petite size is a welcome invitation to the little pups that come on board.  But her fairness and extreme clarity in educating a new puppy is amazing to witness.
