Therapy Dogs - A rewarding job for you and your dog.
Meet Ch. Stonecrest's Beauregard, CD, RN, WC, and Delta Society Pet Partner. Beauregard is owned by Kathy Cipriani who has worked with Beauie to achieve all of his titles on top of getting him certified as a Pet Partner. Beauie and Kathy visit children at a school in Colchester, CT. His weekly visits have helped transition many of the children in his classroom. Beauie has also volunteered at the North Stonington, Wheeler Library Reading Program. He also has made many friends on the Oncology floor at Backus Hospital in Norwich, Ct. Not only do the patients find comfort in his visits but so do the nursing staff and the doctors. Beauie's housemates Scottie and Punch are taking up the job as well. If you have an interest in working with your dog as a Pet Partner, contact Kathy and she can put you in touch with her group leader.
