MOOSETherapy Dog in Training
Moose is our Therapy Dog in Training. Therapy dogs provide affection, comfort, and support to those around them. Training for the title “Therapy Dog” is a lengthy process with many steps taken to desensitize the animal to a variety of places, noises, and scenarios to ensure the safety of others.
Moose will likely greet you as you walk in, and maintain her distance until you ask for her company afterwards. She is trained to be loved and given attention, but while at work she is taught not to play.
Come by anytime to love up on Moose, or enjoy her company while being seen by our therapists. Please ask her handler, Samantha, any questions you may have.
OUR PATIENTS SAY
Very caring staff that take great care of the ENTIRE family. Daughter has had therapy with the owner for years now and I started today. Not only was therapy given, it was explained as we went. It was one on one the entire time. Not the setting you up, say do this for x min and then go off and leave you to yourself to only come back to change your exercise.
Amazing personalized therapeutic massage, they truly get to the root of the problem!! Instant relief when I left! Plus I was given personalized tips for stretching and excersizing to help correct the problem causing my pain! Will be returning!:)
Great place!! I had a massage by the owner, and he knew exactly where and how to loosen up my muscles. I couldn’t be happier, staff was friendly, and the place was spotless. Next time I’m trying the 3D body scan to see how to relieve even more pain.
Definitely recommend trying them out!!!
