A virtual wag, a window kiss
April 28, 2020
There is nothing like a big smooch, gentle touch or a wet nose nuzzle with a happy dog.
But social distancing rules, due to the impact of COVID-19, has created a barrier between those in need of canine therapy visits and those special pups that can give them a little TLC.
Recognizing the need for these services doesn’t stop, the nonprofit Canine Assisted Therapy has launched the TeleDog program to bring people and therapy dogs face to face, either virtually, or through window visits.
“We realized how this was going to impact us,” said Courtney Trzcinski, executive director and CEO of the Oakland Park-based organization.
