The facts

Ok guys, I know I've been doing a lot of small posts lately but now I'm going to tell you when and what I'll be doing!

What: Pet Therapy/Animal Assisted Therapy, meaning I'll be visiting local nursing homes twice a week with my owner/trainer.

When: Starting Next Monday at 3:00 p.m. and starting at the other nursing home Next Thursday at 10:30 a.m. If they like me and I do alright, I'll be going twice a week at these times.

If you or someone you know is interested in Pet Therapy, try these different groups:
http://www.deltasociety.org/index.htm Delta Society

http://www.therapydogs.com/ Therapy Dogs Inc.

Or do what I did, call your local nursing homes or ask the animal shelter or vet on how you can get involved with AAT in your community.

That sounds neat!
I have gone to nursing homes before, but that was when I was really young. Mabye my trainer can take me there again, but that is if my training is doing good...
