Jade and Elvis
A therapy dog is a dog that might be trained to provide affection and comfort to people in hospitals, retirement homes, nursing homes, doctors offices, schools, hospices, disaster areas and to people with mental disorders. Therapy dogs are usually not assistance or service dogs but can be one or both with some organizations. In the U.S., therapy dogs are not service animals and are not afforded the same privileges as service animals are.
Two therapy dogs available upon request. Both Elvis and Jade are highly trained, tested and registered therapy dogs in addition to their duties as service animals. These dogs are present to make our patients comfortable and reduce stress.
Jade has many years of experience and will sit quietly by your side. Elvis is new to this and will most likely be on your lap.
Jade and Elvis are both registered Service Dogs.
Elvis has his CGC (Canine Good Citizen) certificate, has completed his therapy testing with ATD (Alliance of Therapy Dogs) and is an active volunteer at Baptist Health Beaches.
Jade also has her CGC certificate.
