Testimonials

“We love the therapy dog program! Bringing therapy dogs into our third-grade classroom for mindfulness sessions has been incredibly beneficial to my students.” – Kara Weatherhead, Aliso School

“It’s amazing how much love and laughter our therapy dogs bring into the lives of the young and young-at-heart in our community. With soft gazes and gentle tail wags, they help bring out the best in everyone and inspire us to become kinder and more connected to one another.” – Karen Lee Stevens, Founder

“Our partnership with Therapy Dogs of SB has greatly benefitted Storyteller students, staff, and volunteers. The joy and excitement felt on campus during their visits are invaluable, and the engagement of our students dramatically increases.” – Haileigh Ortiz , Storyteller Children’s Center
