How Animal Assisted Therapy
can assist in treatment
When you choose to work with my therapy dog Zeke at my Littleton, Colorado practice, Zeke serves as my “co-therapist” during our sessions. Therapy dogs like this cuddly guy are specially trained to help you relax, feel comfortable and even add a warm, furry touch to therapy sessions if you’d like.
Zeke works with kids, teens and adults. He’s always happy to help calm you down, cheer you up with some tail wagging, and provide a fuzzy head for patting. He loves going out side with active kids and playing fetch or going for a short walk. Plus, Zeke is hypoallergenic, so many people who experience animal allergies aren’t allergic to his soft hair.
Zeke is a certified therapy dog and has passed all canine good citizen tests. Dr. Lazarus and Zeke are a therapy team and have been through several years of extensive training.
