My 12-year-old Labradoodle, Chloe, often comes to work with me. She is a certified therapy dog through Divine Canines ( When she’s not volunteering at the Rawson Saunders school helping kids strengthen their reading skills, she is resting and listening intently on her bed in between my chair and the couch. She is content to participate in as much or as little of your therapeutic process. Chloe is a patient and confidential listener who sends out calm energy and occasionally provides some comic relief by snoring or running in her sleep.
