Wacky & Wonderful Walter

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:

“Hi All,

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,

Jesse”

Have a wonderful weekend!
