We have many Love Dog therapy teams that specialize in one category of population such as our education teams. But every now and then it’s good to introduce a new environment and clientele to both handler and animal and see if it’s a good fit.
One of our education dogs, Dash, started visiting a different type of population this year and we see something new and exciting in him. He is meeting with veterans in a residential home and there is one gentleman in particular he has befriended. When this man is sitting on the sofa, Dash wants to curl up right next to him on his blanket. Then the man will cover the Italian Greyhound up as he knows he likes to burrow! They can spend an extraordinary amount of time just being together this way.
When that gentleman is not there Dash knows something is different and does not look to be up on the sofa! You just never know who your dog will take a special shine to.
