The Murphy Pack - Canine Leisure Centre is priviledged to have 2 Pets as Therapy dogs as part of the family who have lots of experience of working with children and adults with special needs and disabilities. Spot & Ted will welcome a visit from those with special needs and all they ask is that you make a donation directly to the Pets As Therapy Charity via paypal (and a belly rub!) .
Spot and Ted have grown up around mobility and medical equipment and are used to wheelchairs, powerchairs and walkers which other dogs could be frightened of. They are trained in the skills needed for working with children with autism for example they are comfortable and relaxed with the rough handling and loud noises and arm flapping.
For those with communication difficulties we find our Read to Dogs storytime is well recieved in the special needs schools and groups they visit and they'd be happy to have a Story with your child.
A One to one Pets As Therapy session where your child can play and interact and handle on of our trained therapy dogs with the supervision of their licenced handler is also available.
