“I love that I can do something with my boys and I love meeting people and making a difference. One of the best things I have ever done!”
Name: Claire Curtis with Domino and Storm Curtis
Type of dogs: Whippets
Visits: Aged care
Volunteering: 2 years
Enjoys most: Witnessing the gift my dog can give to other people
Dog enjoys: Storm enjoys the scones and Domino enjoyed his Roast Beef lunch once! They are sociable boys and they love the pats and attention and meeting everyone.
Experiences: Storm and I were visiting the respite centre and a lady who was not so sure of dogs admitted that she really enjoyed Storm and after a few visits we arrived and she had made her son go shopping and by a packet of smackos (dog treats) just for Storm. I thought that was lovely (and so did Storm).
On the other side a staff person at my facility was bitten by a Whippet as a young girl so you can imagine her reaction to us. We entered a room, she left. It took 12 months and she asked to pat Storm if I held his head and just recently she fed him some biscuit which I have to say I was really proud!
is proud of all our Therapy Dogs. If you and your dog would like to become a Pet Partner visiting team, please read here.
