Clara is a quiet, calm, gentle dog. She adores children, going for long walks, car rides, napping and treats! People often say she is a "zen" kind of dog that induces relaxation!

How Do You Know That Your Dog Loves Therapy Work?

I tell Clara we are going to visit kids and she lights up. Her mouth is open in a smile, her body wiggles, she goes to the cabinet where her vest is stored and she leads the way to the car! She seems to know what a child needs and happily supplies what is desired.

 Goals for Visits

Our goal is to come alongside a child for a moment and share rest, relaxation, happiness, dog love, warmth, joy, laughter and/or conversation if desired.
