  • Jack
    • Registered Emotional Support Animal
    • Is an Australian Shepherd - business in the front and wiggle in the back. Jack is a gentle boy, lover of cuddles, fetch, squeaky & rope toys, and peanut butter based treats.
    • Jack has a detached retina in his right eye and can be shy at first.  Because he does not have a clear line-of-sight to the door, when he hears the chime, he may give a protective "grump" (does not typically bark) because he knows that someone has come into the office but does not yet know who it is. While we know that he does not mean to be rude, we are still actively working on this behavior with positive reinforcement. We honor his boundaries by letting him take his time to warm up to humans and deciding when he is ready for cuddles.
