K9 Counselors and Therapy Dogs
Pat Ann with Max
Healing Hearts K9 Counselors are unbelievable dogs that are highly trained and skilled at attending to your emotions. They come to work with their handlers and are present in sessions when needed. These dogs often put you at ease, making therapy an easier process.
