Walter waltzes in for a visit!

Walter, our therapy dog, is still hard at work here at Covenant House Vancouver. Each day he assists Jesse, our Mental Health Clinician as he meets with our young people. Besides the general soothing effect a dog can have on someone who is stressed, therapy dogs provide a welcome distraction for people whose therapy session may be getting intense or uncomfortable. Walter also provides hugs and kisses something many of our youth have gone without their whole lives.

We hope you enjoy these pictures of Walter and that they brighten your day.
