Calm, Confident, and Caring

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

Tango has a new gig these days as my sidekick in a weekly program we are starting at school called Mutt-i-grees.  I couldn't have asked for a better partner!    The program teaches self-awareness and encourages empathy in hopes of developing calm, confident, and caring young adults.  Dogs are used as examples and conversation starters in helping the kids to open up and share their thoughts and feelings.  Tango was an excellent example of a calm, confident, and caring individual as she made her way about the classroom.  The kids really seemed to love the session, as did Tango and I.
