For Lindsay, becoming a school therapy dog team with her Blue Merle Aussiedoodle Tucker was challenging but worth it.
In this 46th episode of Therapy Dog Talk, I spoke with Lindsay, a special education teacher in New Jersey, about her experiences working with her Blue Merle Aussiedoodle Tucker as a school therapy dog team. Having seen therapy dogs in action during summer school, Lindsay knew that she was interested in pursuing training her own dog but with a high-energy breed she also knew that they had quite a bit of training ahead of them. Thankfully, she found a Bright & Beautiful Therapy Dogs evaluator who also holds classes in her area for training therapy dogs.
If you’re ready to learn more about Lindsay’s work with Tucker, let’s dive in:
In this episode, we discuss …
- Why Lindsay knew that her Aussiedoodle needed a job—and gave him two.
- What she did to help prepare Tucker to be a School Therapy Dog.
- How’s she’s implemented Tucker’s talking pet buttons at school.
