We recently initiated quarterly 30 minute visits from Therapets. There have been three so far, providing a welcome distraction from any anxieties before our sharing sessions begin. Our “regulars” are Bruno, the German Shepherd and Dougal, the American Doodle. Bruno is very laid back, comes in and instantly relaxes on the carpet. Dougal is much more inquisitive and wants to meet everyone individually, wagging his tail continuously.
This month we had two new visitors, Jazz a Golden Doodle, and Ellie, a working cocker spaniel. Once again both dogs proved to be a welcome distraction, and conversation starter.
NEEDS(Scotland) recognises the part animals can play in lifting our moods and offering unconditional love without any judgement. We are very grateful to the Therapet owners who give their time to support us by sharing their pets with us.
