Siggy Freud – Dog Assistant Therapy
Siggy is a dog assistant therapist. He is light brown Standard Poodle. His job is to interact with those who want to meet him.
Studies have shown that animals can promote emotional and psychological healing for children, adolescents, adults, and elders. Interaction with Siggy can reduce stress levels and increase your sense of well-being.
Siggy welcomes his clients with a warm tail wag and loves having humans pet him. He is only available on a “as needed basis”. When someone does not need him in therapy, he understands and has a special space in the office where he rests to prepare for his next client.
Siggy has been trained under the supervision of Julie Briney through a New Leash on Life and the Homeward Bound Project. Siggy is constantly studying and learning new skills.
