Elvis conducted his therapy visit at the VA home on Friday, then followed it up on Monday with a trip to school. We were invited to the Idaho Science and Technology Charter School to give presentations on therapy work, and Elvis was a big hit.

I gave an overview of the Spinone breed, training therapy dogs, types of therapy, and the impact that therapy dogs have on those whom they visit. Elvis demonstrated some of the tests that he needed to pass for his certification, followed by a question-and-answer session.

They all enjoyed petting him and were amazed when I demonstrated how to strip a Spinone. Everyone got a laugh out of Elvis when he made himself at home in the “poof” chair, which was much too small for him.

It was a visit they’ll remember for a long time to come, and we opened their eyes to the world of both therapy work and the Spinone.

  2. Thanks, Elvis made himself at home and the kids had a great time learning about therapy work. Their assignment was to act as reporters and write a press release on our presentation.
