child safe home test

Kassa faced a new challenge this weekend. He has been around children of various sizes at meet and greets but this weekend we had guests which included an 11 year old, 7 year old and a toddler. We had everyone sitting down and the toddler on his moms lap when we introduced Kassa. He made a bee-line right to the toddler. I was there to intercept. His tail was wagging and his mouth was closed. He was just very drawn to the boy but in a friendly way. The biggest danger seemed to be the toddler getting knocked over. After introductions Kassa chilled and lay down on his bed. Overall Kassa was a superstar. He tollerated a nose grab by the toddler with no signs of agression or frustration. Of course I was right there to help the kids on how to pet Kassa and how to be "gentle". I couldn't be prouder.
