The therapy dog group “Paws of Love” had a very successful Turkey Trot this year.
We had eleven dogs and their handlers walking in the parade on Saturday and a picture of two of our dogs was published in the Baxter Bulletin.
Our booth had eight to twelve certified (or in-training) therapy dogs greeting the public all day Friday and Saturday.
About one hundred Therapy Dog Program brochures were distributed. Over a hundred colored bracelets were handed out to children who visited the dogs.
We spoke to a number of people who were interested in getting their dogs trained and certified as Therapy Dogs. We also spoke with people who were interested in adding new facilities to our visitation list.
