Behavior Observation: (3/20 Lifesaving) Presenting at the front of the kennel, was fairly easy to leash but was trying to nose out of the door before sliplead was over their head. Had to physically hold her from trying to get out without a lead, but had one easily placed on. Pulled on leash to back door and was excited to be outside. Seemed interested in cats and unsure which direction to go. Avoidant in the covered run, mostly looking for exit. Pulled on lead once more when heading back inside, easily brought back into her kennel and leash removed. A little hand-shy, could use some TTA.
