She's fine as long as she has something "else" to do...she has learned to walk past the bunnies and g. pigs by retrieving something when coming out of her crate and going upstairs. She can get by the cats now by me walking her past, and putting a toy in her mouth...and heading back to her crate or outside. So she's learned to ignore them for the most part, and keep her mind on something else.
The problem would be if we matched her up with someone with limited mobility (weakness in the arms, unsteady on her feet)...but a able bodied person can manage the issue...she's not horrible, but when caught off guard responds eagerly...too eagerly for someone in a wheelchair or walker, let's say.
