Hi there, I'm talking to you. Yes, you. My name is Sherrie. My pup's name is Sunny and we are training to be an Animal Assisted Counseling team. You are listening to the Therapy Dog Talk podcast, the show that interviews past, present and future Therapy Dog teams about how they're making an impact in their communities. Today we're talking with Kailey,
a Kansas City area school counselor about how she partners with her Soft-coated Wheaten Terrier Leo to help the elementary school kids that she sees at work. We'll discuss how Kailey was introduced to the idea of therapy dogs at a conference she attended, what she found helpful while training Leo to come to work with her and how Kailey has learned to advocate for Leo's needs at school.
