In a mission to help grow new teams, Mindy and her dogs Woody & Hayes founded a network of Zen Therapy Dogs to connect with other volunteers in Orlando, Florida.

In this 63rd episode of Therapy Dog Talk, I talk with Mindy about her experiences volunteering with her Therapy Dogs Woody and Hayes at Advent Health with children oncology patients and Orlando International Airport through the Paw Pilots program in addition to other initiatives such as Give Kids the World, nursing homes, first responder visits, bereavement camps, a children’s reading program and as an emergency management mental health response partner for Seminole County.

If you’re ready to learn more about Mindy’s experiences with Woody and Hayes, let’s dive in:

In this episode, we discuss …

  • How Mindy’s own experience with being visited by a Therapy Dog led to her volunteering with her dogs.
  • What it’s like to train hounds for Therapy Dog work.
