I just wanted to share with you all a note that was sent to the staff by Jesse who is one of our Mental Health Clinicians and Walter’s dad and trainer:
I know that when most of you see Walter he is either running past you, burying his head in a garbage can, or "vacuuming" the floor looking for a snack. I can only imagine it would be difficult for you to imagine him in a therapeutic setting.
Here is some proof that he is a very different dog in session. I feel really privileged to watch Walter read the energy of our clients in the counselling office and to observe the nonverbal communication between the two. It's quite a challenge to be highly anxious when you've got this snoring lump lying next to you.
Thought I'd share a picture of a youth (with permission) from a session Wednesday.
Enjoy your day,
Have a wonderful weekend!
