Hayley

“She’s my first dog ever. I did a lot of research on giant breed dogs because I knew I wanted a giant breed – I can’t explain why. I did a lot of research and I kept coming back to Leonberger because of their temperament which is very, very mellow. She’s really, really chill.

We moved here from Seattle three weeks ago. She and I have been a therapy dog team for about two years. We visited a lot of kids in Seattle. We visited a residential facility for children awaiting foster care every week. The kids all had something going on and Hayley just took them all in.

She’s earned her Therapy Dog Advanced, which means over she’s made over 100 visits and we’re very close to getting Therapy Dog Excellent, which is 200 visits. We’re about 15 visits away. We’re hoping to start those visits up again here once we’re more settled.”
