We will not be replying to messages relating to registering your dog as a therapy dog to gain rental housing or public access rights, this is something we do not do as part of our business  as all our dogs are bred, raised and trained by us then matched to the client and role.


Client Testimonials

“Wendy was really lovely to deal with and her passion for her work shines through in everything she does. She takes the time to understand your needs and find a dog who will fit with your family.”
Black Family

“Wendy’s expertise, friendly nature and professionalism was critical in welcoming our 5 month old puppy into our family. The benefits our puppy has on our daughter with Down Syndrome and Autism were immediate; she was calmer, more able to focus on tasks and started sleeping throughout the night.
However, it was Wendy’s support via phone, email and messenger conversations that have been vital in ensuring a smooth transition to our home.  Wendy helped us to understand our puppy’s nature, stabilise training and extend it to look for areas to help our daughter more.
The transition to home was smart and professional- I can’t thank Wendy enough and would highly recommend her services to other families looking for their first therapy puppy “
Tomlinson Family

“Wendy has been amazing. We were not a “doggy” family. I was not a “dog” lover, but my family really needed a therapy dog for my children who both have high health medical needs. Our needs was for a calm, not-too-needy, loving and smart therapy dog.”
Our therapy puppy is just a beautiful, such a part of our family, and we love him. Wendy has supported me through this whole journey. Our puppy is super confident and comfortable, very very friendly, fun and playful, but also very calm for a puppy – he was just what the doctor ordered for our WHOLE FAMILY. Than you so much Wendy.”
