We recently asked some of our Go!Go!Go! Getter parents if they had a cool past time they’d like to share, shock or inspire us with.
Linking in very nicely with RSPCA week (30th April - 6th May). Jude Hutchinson, one of our very cool parent’s gave us her story…..
What is your cool past time?
Actually it’s something I do with our dog Barney, he’s a PAT (Pets as Therapy) dog.
Ooo we’ve never heard of that, what is PAT?
It’s where Pets act as Therapy for those people who are suffering from a variety of conditions. It has been found that dogs can be great therapy, offering improvement to depression, sleep and overall physical and psychological comfort. Just stroking a dog can raise someone’s spirits. We’re quite new to it but we have already made lots of people happy.
That sounds great, where do you and Barney do this?
At the moment we make weekly visits to an old people’s nursing home where they stroke and chat to him.
Can anyone’s pet do this or has Barney been specially trained or bred for the job?
Barney is a rescue dog and although there was no official training he did have an assessment from the PAT organisation to make sure he was suitable, i.e. didn’t jump up, how he reacted when was stroked, how he took treats and how he reacted to sudden noises.
When he’s not working what does Barney like to do as a past time?
He loves to play and go on walks but his favourite thing to do is sit on my lap when I’m watching TV with my blanket. He waits for me to lift the blanket so he can sneak under.
If anyone reads this and thinks a PAT dog may benefit their organisation or thinks their dog would make a good PAT dog who should they contact?
If someone wants a PAT dog visit they should go to www.petsastherapy.org although there is a waiting list. All visitors are volunteers so if anyone think their dog may be suitable I’m sure they would welcome new visitors and their pets.
We’d like to say a big Go!Go!Go! thank you to Jude (and Barney) for answering our questions and if you have any more questions for us or you have a cool past time and want us to add you to our blog please get in touch. firstname.lastname@example.org
