Annie the Therapy Dog

Annie, a Newfoundland, completed her obedience courses at the Kennelwood Dog Academy. As an “aspiring” therapy dog, she will be trained to provide affection and comfort to children and adolescents (even adults) dealing with a variety of issues, such as trauma or depression. Annie’s areas of expertise include tail-wagging, nuzzling, and unconditional love. She draws inspiration from Balto, Seaman, Toto, and, of course, Lassie. When she’s not busy with her clients at River Birch, Annie enjoys sleeping, eating, chasing Cindy’s cat, and overreacting to the doorbell.
