Charming.  Lily loves to snuggle and be scratched underneath her chin on her neck.


Being a dog trainer, Lily has done many demonstrations for my beginner and advanced classes.  She's a very willing assistant who has her CD and Rally Excellent titles.  She also loves the agility classes that she has taken.

How do you know that your dog enjoys being a therapy dog?

We visit pediatrics at Loyola Hospital. She as well as the children love the attention and the pets she gets as you can tell by her fluttering curly tail. She entertains by showing her stop, drop, and roll demonstrations, her rollovers, waves, and high fives! And, of course, she always looks forward to the food rewards she gets for a job well done. Lily brings many smiles to the people she visits. She also enjoys visiting our seniors at Oak Trace in Downers Grove.

Any other information that you would like to include about your dog:

Lily lives with her human mom, Donna Angeleri, who is a dog trainer at Petsmart in Darien, IL.
