Summary: Chrissy came into the room calm and wiggly, she was friendly and social towards the handlers.
Summary (1): Chrissy was brought in as a stray so her behavior around other dogs is unknown.
1/8: When off leash at the Care Center, Chrissy initially is nervous, tucked tail and posture, but tolerates the greeter dog’s genital and muzzle licks. As the session continues, Chrissy loosens up some and solicits gentle play with a few bounces and play bows.
1/9: Due to Chrissy’s sociability, she was utilized as a greeter today. Chrissy engages in playful behaviors with a variety of dogs. She manages herself well with sexually motivated males, by soliciting bouncy play.
