Our group continues to grow with steady ambition…….we’ve added some wonderful men to our dog teams – it’s always nice to see the men participate in this – i know the men (and the women!) at the nursing homes and assisted living appreciate it. Quite a few of our dog teams have gone on to work with Courtroom Dogs for Kids, an offshoot of this program. I want everyone to know that it’s not a requirement to go on to CDFK – i’m happy if you want to explore that option, but it’s just as important to have teams going to homes, hospices, schools and various events, spreading the word of how much good therapy dogs do.
I’d like to throw this out there- how about putting together a team that responds to disasters? yes, like the ones we’ve been reading about. I’m not saying that we need to go all over the country, but i’d like us to be prepared to offer comfort and solace here in the Southeast should a disaster occur. What are your thoughts on this? If you’re interested, and would like to help get this group up and running, let me know – we have a wonderful group of teams that will bring joy to anyone they visit!
ok, i’m going to attempt to add some pictures – anyone interested in maintaining this website is more than welcome to get in touch with me so that i can hand it off to you!! LOL i’m not the most sophisticated person with a computer, as you can tell.
send me pics of you with y our dogs working – i’d like us to have several pages of pics for people to look at.
