Freddie Parker Westerfield, All in a Day’s Work

It’s a big responsibility being a Canine Dog Therapist (CDT).  I take it very seriously.

Me thinking about how to amuse my clients

Me, Freddie Parker Westerfield, CDT, thinking about what my clients need today. 

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.
Make an appointment if you want me to help you.

It is gratifying to know that I help my clients . . .

while my human just sits there and watches.

  1. Oh Freddie P — it is quite obvious to anyone who has a “nose” for the truth — that you are indispensable to ALL humans (even the ones out here in blogosphere); but I would have to admit … especially for your clients who are fortunate to have you near. When you get to the heart of the matter — “you the DOG”!! 😀


  2. This is just wonderful!! The “Hardest Working Dog in The Therapy World” – for sure!! GREAT JOB, Freddie P! It’s nice of you to let your human assist (or support, or just watch, or whatever it is she does there) – ??????????? [?] Keep up the good work. I’m very proud of you!
