Though it’s rare for Scotties to become therapy dogs, Paisley, a silver brindle Scottie, does her breed proud. At three and a half, Paisley has earned her CGC (Canine Good Citizens award) and has passed the required test to become a member of Therapy Dogs United, a regional organization for therapy dogs covering northwestern Pennsylvania and western New York. “The training was a bit tough,” said Nancy, her owner and handler. It involves getting used to wheelchairs and walkers as well as interacting calmly with strange people. She had to take the test twice to pass.”
