This is Peggy. She has a very important job. She is the School Dog of the same large bustling school that Rory works at who I introduced you to last week. Peggy is a wonderful dog, she’s a gentle and sensitive girl who offers a calming influence on her students. She is fabulous at bringing shy students out of their shells – just quietly sitting still. Or calming a special needs student – just watching and listening. Such is her gentle nature she has also helped many students overcome their fear of dogs – never approaching them unless they approach her. You’ll find Peggy and her handlers moving amongst the classrooms or attending staff meetings – because Peggy also brings a smile to staff as well during their hectic day. Peggy’s owner specifically wanted positive reinforcement training for the School Dogs and I’m honoured to have been able to bring this type of training into the school. It has been wonderful working with you Peggy, my sensitive soul – you are truly a marvellous dog.
