Scout

Therapy dog (in training)

Hello! I’m Scout, a cocker spaniel puppy that is training to be a therapy dog at With Grace Therapy. During my training, you may see me at the office working hard to develop my skills as a therapy dog. I will respect your sessions and won’t make them all about me.

As I am currently in training, you won’t be able to request a session with me, however, we hope in the near future I will be trained and experienced to provide you support during your therapy sessions.
