LISA WINDUS, 

THERAPY DOG OWNER

A mom explained that her daughter was non-verbal. She gently moved her daughter's hand across my dog, but the girl didn't respond.  Then my dog laid her head in her lap and closed her eyes drawing the BIGGEST smile from the girl. She was overjoyed!

It's overwhelming how powerful and inspirational the effect this program has on young learners.

THERAPY DOG OWNER

A woman in a nursing home, lovingly stroked my dog's head, held his paw, and whispered, “Oh, Cooper. You are so special. You’ll never know how special your are to people like me.
