I have always used my dog as my co-therapist. I believe that a dog in a therapy session brings a sense of calm to a room. Studies show that when people pat a dog, for instance, their blood pressure goes down. My dog also offers unconditional love to each person who comes through my door. I have seen my dog soothe people’s anxiety or immediately sense when they are upset, wanting comfort.
My current dog co-therapist is a year-old brown Labradoodle named Maisie. If you're allergic to dogs, Maisie is hypoallergenic. If you’d rather that Maisie not join us, no worries, she won't be invited to our session.
