Camry is Cynthia’s third Therapy dog she has raised and trained. They are an official team certified by Pet Partners and most recently awarded the higher level qualification which is Complex.
Since her first exposure to a small dog when she was 1-1/2 years old, Taylor has been afraid of all animals, almost to an irrational extent. There was nothing notable about her experience with the dog – we were camping and saw our friend’s dog resting at their campsite. We thought Taylor would love seeing it up close so we carried her over there (she hadn’t yet learned to walk) and set her down next to the dog. When she turned around and saw what was next to her, she about jumped out of her skin.
