Meet Our Therapy Dogs
Lachlan is our newest Therapy Dog at Valley Connections Counselling and lives with our Director, Amanda, and her family. He is a purebred German Shepherd and joined us at nearly 4 months old in October of 2019. Lachlan is a very calm and gentle puppy with loads of love to give. He loves to greet each of Amanda's clients and then cosy up for a nap for their Psychotherapy sessions.

Rosie attends sessions with her owner, Avril, one of our Registered Psychotherapists. She is a good-natured and rambunctious Rottweiler who loves to be loved.

Troni also belongs to Amanda, and is our original Therapy Dog at Valley Connections Counselling. She began her life as a breeding dog, and when she turned 7, she came to live with Amanda and her family to begin her retirement. She is a gentle, timid, and loving dog, fond of children and smaller animals in particular.
Troni is our shy and beautiful Great Pyrenees
Hugs from kids are her favourite kind!
