Next week will be Ginger's last animal assisted therapy ("pet therapy") visit before we move to Missouri ~ a lot of people are going to miss her! Ginger has been providing weekly pet therapy visits to residents and staff at Stonehill Care Center for well over 4 years now. She started as a Therapy Dogs International registered therapy dog and now represents Canine Connection (Positively Trained) Certified Therapy Dogs.
Opal did her last service dog/trick demonstration at Dubuque Retirement Community today. She was a big hit as always! What a ham!
Canine Connection LLC will be relocating to Columbia, Missouri at the end of July. At this time we would like to thank all of our wonderful clients and friends for your unwavering support during the past 4 years. We will miss you and wish you continued success!
Whitey was featured in the Telegraph Herald on Sunday. Whitey is a very popular little guy here in Dubuque where he and his owner, Nancy Ahlborn provide animal-assisted therapy visits to area residents in nursing centers and Area Residential Care which serves individuals with developmental disabilities.
Children at Dubuque Lutheran School learned about what service dogs do by watching Opal perform some of her trained tasks today.
Opal always enjoys performing and really enjoys the positive reinforcement she receives following her demonstrations!
Congratulations, Wrigley on your role as Sandy in the musical, Annie on May 17 and 18 at Jefferson Middle School in Dubuque! Good dog!
