Leaders experience a great deal of tension and stress as a result of the daily responsibility of running an organization. It affects their physical, emotional and intellectual wellbeing.
Therapy dogs provide emotional support such as affection, comfort and love. Their physical benefits can reduce blood pressure and improve overall cardiovascular health. They also release endorphins, which provide a calming effect. These can help alleviate pain, reduce stress and anxiety and improve one’s overall psychological state.

We have two loving certified therapy dogs: Sonny, who is a Labradoodle and Kyrie, who is a Goldendoodle. They will bring stress relief and fun to any program you are involved with at Winds of Change Farm or at any meeting, program or activity at your location.
