Chewie — Therapy
Chewie will be 5 years old on Saint Paddy’s Day 2021. He was born March 17, 2016. He is a golden lab. He did his first therapy visit at 8 months old and still loves doing them. We are with Fidos for Freedom in laurel MD. He goes on visits to Hospitals, nursing homes, DEAR( Dogs educating , assisting readers) programs at libraries and local elementary school. He also does special events and demos. Chewie has AKC Distinguished Therapy dog which he earned at 3 months shy of being 4 years old with over 400 visits. He currently has done close to 500 visits, it would be more but got shut down by Covid. March of 2020. The last visit was with Howard County MD 911 operations.
He also does therapy work with American Red Cross at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda Maryland. Here he does visits with sick and wounded warriors. he also visits with their family members and nurses there. He has been with them since November 2017.
He enjoys his job and does it with a big smile on his face. He loves doing tricks and of course the treat that follows.
He is my third therapy dog and not to put any downgrading to the other 2, but I do believe he is the best that i have had.
