Just want to introduce Willow the Therapy Dog!

New member here and wanted to take a minute to introduce Willow. We have been working as a therapy team since November of 2017! She and I work at two local hospitals, as well as the Ronald McDonald House for the local children’s hospital. I’ve enjoyed watching her lift people’s moods, touch peoples hearts, and comfort so many. I wish all of you getting ready to test the best of luck! It’s so rewarding to have such an amazing “job” with these amazing dogs!

Our Cooper just started therapy school. He is only 14 months old, so it's a bit of a challenge to get him to calm down. The gentle leader collar has been a godsend! I'm looking forward to volunteering with him, but I'm not sure he will be ready in 6 weeks. I'm thinking we might need to do this over because he is so young. We shall see ...
