Therapy Dog In Training
Brisket was born November 23rd, 2016 and is a friendly, fluffy "mini" goldendoodle. He does not shed, is hypoallergenic, and loves to be around children. Brisket won't be able to take his therapy dog test until he is a year of age, but he has passed Puppy Kindergarten with flying colors, and is on to Basic Good Manners.
Brisket's current interests include eating, playing, and sliding on wood floors. You may see Brisket going for a walk just before or after your appointment, and you are welcome to pet and play with him. He loves it! During all evaluations, however, the focus is on your child, and Brisket sleeps contently in his crate in a separate room.
