Webster Creative Opportunities has been receiving pet therapy services from Therapy Dogs International, a service composed of handlers and their therapy dogs that donate their time to many different programs! The handlers and dogs are fully certified and provide therapeutic benefits to those who receive services. Pet therapy has become popular in recent years; benefits include stress relief, fostering communication and improving range of motion. 

Individuals at WCO have developed a relationship with Argent, the therapy dog and her handler, Susan, and look forward to their visits! A lot of progress has been made during pet therapy over the past month, some individuals preferred just to look at Argent at first; now they enjoy petting her for long periods of time. Each individual has their own way of interacting with Argent! Pet therapy has been a great addition to the activities offered at Webster!
