Meet a Therapy Dog at the Library

Big Furry Friends will be at the library on Tuesdays, October 10 through November 21, between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. in the Teen Area.  Stop by to visit the dogs!  All ages are welcome.

Information from  The Big Furry Friends Animal Assisted Therapy Team is made up of more than 10 dog-human pairings available to deploy to a range of settings.

Each team undergoes at least 12 weeks of training, learning to enter a large range of environments and settings to deliver emotional and motivational support to all individuals. Each team member holds an American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen certificate, and is a member of Alliance Therapy Dog Association. Handlers are trained to become knowledgeable of their dog’s body language, stress indicators, and the environment around them.
