Peaches is a Certified Therapy Dog that works with children at St. Mary's Childrens Hospital each week and also visits with Rehab patients at Nu Vista Assisted Living Wellington.
When she was about 3, we had her complete the Basic Puppy trianing courses at Petco, and once she graduated from the 4 different courses, passed her Canine Good Citizen tests, she then went on to Certified Therapy Training.
She trained with http://shareapet.org for several months, completed her required exam which included 10 basic & advanced requirements and has already made such an impact on so many children each time she visits....she makes them SMILE!
