Zuco (ZU-cho) is currently in training for animal assisted therapy (AAT) but is not yet an “official” therapy dog. He is hypoallergenic – he does not shed and does not cause symptoms in most allergy sufferers. Zuco’s presence is completely optional and you can let Sue know if you would prefer him not to be in the room.
Having Zuco in the therapy room helps people in different ways, but the goal is to provide comfort, encourage trust, elevate mood, and encourage communication. Plus he’s just really cute! Please feel free to ask any questions about this option when making your first appointment.
Zuco is a bijon-poodle mix and loves to hang out by your side or is happy to sit close by in his own chair, whichever is more comfortable for you.
