Assisted Pet And Music Therapy And Companionship
Avg response < 7 hrs
I was a public school science teacher for 23 years then left 4 years ago to start my own dove release business. In addition to dove releases I began visiting schools and senior facilities to share the fascinating history of the doves as messengers. Early on I noticed the overwhelmingly positive reaction the doves received and their inherent therapeutic quality. We then expanded our family business to include animal assisted therapy. Along with the dove I bring my lap dog, Cuckoo. She is a natural therapy dog and is so sensitive to the needs of others offering a nuzzle to those in low spirits. Our program has been well received and we are regular visitors at several senior locations. We also offer music therapy, in particular for those with dementia. Research has shown music and the arts to have healing qualities and are among the last memories to fade. I love gardening, fishing, the outdoors and sports.

Always have giant breed dogs. I have a Newfie presently who was a certified therapy dog. Owned appaloosa horses specialty, raining, Western riding. Earned reserve NLT champion in California. Raised several litters of English Pointer dogs. Currently own three for field trials. I gave up the horses when I was in a bad wreck in 2010 where as my horse stepped on my ankle and I almost lost my leg. I'm on disability insurance but have recovered enough to drive and take care of myself, my animals and of course my hubby. I'm the neighborhood animal sitter so I figured maybe I could be paid for it.
