A therapy dog is a dog that is trained to provide affection, comfort and love to people with anxiety disorders. We have our therapy dog in training to help patients de-stress. Rocky and Dr Scherer work together as a team to improve the comfort of our patients.

Rocky is a Giant Schnauzer, part of the working breed.  It is the largest of the three breeds of Schnauzers. Rocky is hypoallergenic. He is intelligent, loyal, strong willed,  dominant and kind.

There have been significant advances in the field of animal assisted therapy and the use of therapy dogs. Watch Rocky grow and develop on our Facebook page.
