Noble Vestal Labradoodles Lending a Helping Paw
Any Australian Labradoodle owner knows that their furry companion offers a lifetime of unconditional love and companionship. These qualities and more are put to good use by Noble Vestal Labradoodles pet therapy program.
Daily handlers work with our highly trained Therapy Dogs to work with kids in our local school system, patients in nursing homes and hospitals. This service, formally known as animal assisted therapy, physical occupational and speech therapists work side by side with our Therapy Dogs, they create goals and outline ways the dogs can help kids and patients achieve them.
Our dogs motivate patents and students with mobility problems to crouch low, jump high or stand on their tip toes to pet them. The dogs can act as companions to encourage children to practice walking, or they can demonstrate how to run, catch a ball or push lights and buttons. Our dogs also work with children with socialization problems.
Other children with sensory and tactile issues can learn to tolerate new sensations by petting and feeling the soft, curly coat of the Australian Labradoodle.
In addition to helping children the program benefits seniors who are shut ins.
We are blessed and our spirt is equally rewarded when we do therapy visits with our dogs and we see smiling faces.
