Many Australian Labradoodles are trained as therapy dogs. They are very good at providing comfort for people in sickness and difficult times in their lives. Therapy dogs can be taken into establishments to give comfort, distraction and stimulation. Isaac has visited care homes and is part of the kennel club bark and read scheme and is just about to embark on a new visit to the local police stations to give empathy to officers after a difficult day.
Isaac visits 2 local schools and has become an integral member of the schools. All the children on the scheme have met their targets and as a result developed confidence and self-esteem.
Australian labradoodles are so good in this role and it would be lovely to see some of our puppies taking on some of these roles.
