First Day Back at Work

Our first day back at work went remarkably smoothly. The spikes worked brilliantly which meant that I didn’t slip on the snow and ice. Jasmine also worked extremely well, even finding that awkward drop kerb which had been such a problem in training. I’d hoped to be able to buy some lunch at work but this wasn’t possible today which meant that I had to go out to a sandwich shop where jasmine had not been before. again she coped really well and seemed really happy. it was a very short new route, but nevertheless, a new route which I had to teach her independently of an instructor.

She seemed very settled at work and comfortable on her bed.

I feel this was an excellent start to what will be jasmine’s bread and butter work.

    Glad yesterday went well
    Hi Mel! I’m glad to read here that your first day at work with Jasmine went well, with her doing the route to work correctly, coping well with the new route you taught her, and settling down quietly while you were working. I don’t envy you having to walk along icy pavements and roads, but it sounds like those spikes you bought made those walks over ice easier.
