Therapy Dog Services

Lisa Rockland and the All About My Dog team are proud to provide pet therapy services to our community. Our certified pet therapy teams work individually and in combination to visit hospitals, nursing homes, care units, libraries, schools, and corporate centers—any place where our visit will elicit a smile. In addition, we support the work of animal shelters, rescue services, service dog training programs, and other programs that help kids and adults interact with or overcome their fear of dogs. We are happy to offer custom presentations that meet your needs.

Corey Spaulding’s Story

Corey recently contacted the Doug Flutie Foundation to share her AAMD experience:

I wanted to share with you a great experience I have had working with a trainer in Natick, MA (Yay Natick:) – her name is Lisa Rockland [at] “All about your dog.” My child has a rare psychiatric condition “selective mutism” and thought to be on the spectrum – she does not speak in public. I was given Lisa’s name by someone in Michigan who knew she had trained a dog for a young boy with autism. Lisa is amazing and we are now in a group where she is training 3 service/therapy dogs. It has made a world of difference for my child and I wanted to pass this positive experience on to other parents. Thanks – Corey

She also emailed Lisa a progress report:

Lisa

I am so incredibly blown away by our experience with you – and your staff! With your permission, I would also like to notify the local media to see if they would be interested in doing a story about therapy dogs and your training.

Sarah Catherine was able to say a sentence to Timber’s grandmother (Heidi’s mom)…

“ We took Blue to Home Depot twice and she did really well.”

She was also so proud of herself that she could ask you a question at the end of class.

These are significant in her life because Timber’s grandmother was the 1st adult she has been able to talk to since 2015 – and you were the first person she was able to ask a question. She has been working hard in therapy with the goal of asking a clerk at Trader Joe’s “where is the bathroom” but has been unable to.

SC then said she wanted to ask you a question – she feels you are a trusted adult.

SC was on cloud 9 yesterday – so incredibly proud of herself and her accomplishment.

I know from [a] mom to a mom, you get it – and I cannot thank you enough.

Grateful,
Corey
