BIZZIE & John

Therapy Dog Team

Bizzie is a 4-pound “Morkie” (Maltese-Yorkie mix) who brightens any room with her infectious exuberance and turns heads with her exceptional cuteness. She’s a proven natural around the elderly and ailing, and she’s fearless among wheelchairs, walkers and other medical equipment. She also finds great joy in the presence of children. She’s always been drawn to young people, and her gentle demeanor and tiny stature put even the shyest kids at ease whenever she approaches. A simple pat on Bizzie’s head or shake of her paw is always enough to induce a lasting smile.

TITAN & Jordan

Therapy Dog Team

Titan is a rescue Pit Bull from Tuscaloosa Alabama. Jordan adopted him during her time at the University of Alabama and knew he was perfect for therapy work. He is outgoing, loving, sociable and patient. He loves to give kisses and cuddle. His ideal work situation is one where he gets to meet new people, give lots of kisses, and lay down for belly rubs! Titan loves people of all ages and never passes up an opportunity to meet a new person and cuddle up! He is very good with children and very patient with people who are hesitant about him due to his looks. His favorite thing to do is change people’s negative perceptions about Pit Bulls, and help them learn to love them!

Corey Spaulding’s Story

Corey recently contacted the Doug Flutie Foundation to share her AAMD experience:

I wanted to share with you a great experience I have had working with a trainer in Natick, MA (Yay Natick:) – her name is Lisa Rockland [at] “All about your dog.” My child has a rare psychiatric condition “selective mutism” and thought to be on the spectrum – she does not speak in public. I was given Lisa’s name by someone in Michigan who knew she had trained a dog for a young boy with autism. Lisa is amazing and we are now in a group where she is training 3 service/therapy dogs. It has made a world of difference for my child and I wanted to pass this positive experience on to other parents. Thanks – Corey

She also emailed Lisa a progress report:

Lisa

I am so incredibly blown away by our experience with you – and your staff! With your permission, I would also like to notify the local media to see if they would be interested in doing a story about therapy dogs and your training.

Sarah Catherine was able to say a sentence to Timber’s grandmother (Heidi’s mom)…

“ We took Blue to Home Depot twice and she did really well.”

She was also so proud of herself that she could ask you a question at the end of class.

These are significant in her life because Timber’s grandmother was the 1st adult she has been able to talk to since 2015 – and you were the first person she was able to ask a question. She has been working hard in therapy with the goal of asking a clerk at Trader Joe’s “where is the bathroom” but has been unable to.

SC then said she wanted to ask you a question – she feels you are a trusted adult.

SC was on cloud 9 yesterday – so incredibly proud of herself and her accomplishment.

I know from [a] mom to a mom, you get it – and I cannot thank you enough.

Grateful,
Corey
