Please dont' be offended by this --I hope it will make things better for you as you do such wonderful work in a community that really needs it.

I did not know that! Thanks.

no problem--I work in the field, and I live it with my own daughter--so thought I'd pass on the info so you are not likely to offend someone down the line.

Lol when I first saw your username I thought you had a Malinois x Amstaff and I went "haha you have a cross like that as a therapy dog???" lol.

Wow that's such a cool story. I always thought it would be a neat thing to do, it must be nice to have a dog with the right temperament. I bet it's a nice contrast

LMAO! Yeah, my dogs are total opposites in personality and temperament. Grant is so calm and friendly. And Harry is a working bred Malinois.

What a wonderful story...dogs have such an amazing ability to connect. I can't wait until Harley gets certified next year!

Thanks Baxter !!! Nash is a child who happens to have DS. I've learned a lot in 8 yrs ! As to TDI dogs , I didn't want to hi-jack this post , but my Bubba was bound and determined to focus on a girl who would only rock in a corner and moan . Took a long time but each visit he would crawl closer to her and they finally connected and she calmed down . Another plus was a new gal who never got out of her chair until Bubba walked in the door .... she said " dog " and ran to him . Bless these dogs and the kids they touch !!!

Sometimes when someone does something as amazing as speaking for the first time in a long time a therapy dog is usually the one that will bring it out of the person. So I think the teacher was not exaggerating.

It's amazing what therapy dogs can do for people and this is proven everyday. I'm glad your dog is doing the same work as Lola.
