Review for Laura Baker School Association, Northfield, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We are donors for LBSA and also serve with our two licensed therapy dogs Mags and Molly. When we visit at LBSA—we turn over the handling of M&M to the clients. First, of course, there is time for cuddling—loved by all! Then the clients get our dogs to obey their commands: from simple ones like staying when told and coming when called, to more complex ones like climbing over and navigating obstacles.

The clients absolutely love doing this,… and so do our dogs. It is wonderful to see the clients learn what the dogs want and need, how to motivate them, and then how get them to perform on command. They really, really love our dogs and they, the dogs, and we all look forward to these joyous sessions.

We are so grateful for LBSA, how they cater so thoughtfully for their clients, how they welcome innovative therapies, how they provide such great facilities, and how they allow us to participate in working with their clients. LBSA is a wonderful service and is so deserving of the time, attention, and resources necessary to continue their excellent support in this critical area
