I have decided to stop bringing Divinity to her Saturday playgroup. Although these group sessions have helped Divinity break out of her shell, Divinity just does not enjoy being in a large group of energetic dogs.
Divinity is comfortable in the company of 2-3 dogs, she does her play-bows, and takes to the chase. However, Divinity withdraws into herself when placed in a larger group.
My ultimate goal is for Divinity to be certified first as a Canine Good Citizen, and then as a Therapy dog. Working as a Therapy Dog is something I am certain Divinity would really enjoy. As such, our time and money would best be spent on training classes towards her certifications.
I am not certain when I will stop the playgroup sessions. However, it is unlikely to be more than another one or two weeks.
