It’s a big responsibility being a Canine Dog Therapist (CDT). I take it very seriously.
I always know what might be most helpful to my clients. Sometimes they need to laugh so I do something to amuse them. Sometimes they need to calm down so I let them pet me. Sometimes I have to demonstrate what they need to do to make their life better like shake things up a bit or tear into a problem .
Moosie is my therapy assistant. My Auntie Lyn gave him to me. Auntie Lyn is very compassionate and knows how stressful it is for me to do everything on my own.
I often use Moosie to demonstrate concepts such as:
- No matter how life shakes you up you can survive gut wrenching experiences
- What we show on the outside is not always what is inside.
- A broken heart is the least of your worries.
- If you want to be inconspicuous don’t wear red.
It is gratifying to know that I help my clients . . .
while my human just sits there and watches.
