Misa Minnie a 1 year and 5 month old yorkie takes and passes her first Therapy Dog Test for TDI in El Cajon, Ca. She was trained with positive reinforcement and lots of treats although no treats are allowed during this test. Praising your dog is encouraged. 🙂 Special thanks to Cate from http://shelterdogstodreamdogs.com for hosting the TDI test! We loved meeting your rescues and watching them go from unpredictable deathrow dogs to Therapy dogs and service dogs!
