Layla's progress at the prison has been nothing short of excellent.  She arrived without any significant issues or anxieties anyway, but everyone has seen a really great dog emerge from the quiet girl who arrived here in December. With the cold weather, they haven't been getting as much outside time as usual, but that seems to be OK with Layla.  She is extremely content lounging inside or napping in her kennel.  The first official evaluation took place this past week and Layla did exceptionally well.  Her favorite part-time babysitter from another dorm was the one who put her through her commands - without kibble - for assessment.  Her handler is so proud that she did so well.  She's been saying from the start that Layla is a very smart girl, and this sweet hound keeps proving her right at every testing stage along the way.
