Jacee had her first Therapy Dog job today at the On Loc senior day center in the Outer Mission district. She had a great time.
On Loc is a facility for people who need nursing-home type care during the day, but are able to sleep in their homes at night. The patients are transported between the center and their homes.
It is a small facility, so we got to meet all of the patients and staff. Almost everyone there loves dogs, so Jacee was in heaven. Much to my surprise, she was very calm, and didn’t maul any of the patients.
This was a “mentored” visit, which means an experienced Therapy Dog handler was watching to make sure we didn’t get into trouble. If there are no complaints from the mentor or facility, from now on, we will be sent out alone.
