Celebrating National Dog Day with Domino: The Heart of Animal-Assisted Therapy at Stable Minds

Celebrating National Dog Day with Domino: The Heart of Animal-Assisted Therapy at Stable Minds

National Dog Day, celebrated on the 26th of August, is a day to recognize and appreciate the unconditional love, loyalty, and joy that our canine companions bring into our lives. At Stable Minds, we have a special reason to celebrate – our very own therapy dog, Domino.

Domino: More Than Just a Pet

Domino, adopted by Milly at 15 weeks old from a Welsh farm in Criccieth, started his journey as a beloved family pet. However, his innate ability to provide comfort and support, especially during challenging times, led Milly to train him as a therapy dog. Domino's presence has been instrumental in initiatives like "My Umbrella Me" and "PTSD on the Moor Park" in Knutsford, where he played a pivotal role in their success.

Spreading Joy at Salford Royal

Domino's therapeutic impact isn't limited to Stable Minds. He became Salford Royal's soul therapy dog last year. Every week, Domino, accompanied by Milly, volunteers at the hospital, bringing smiles to the faces of staff members, doctors, nurses, and patients alike. His gentle demeanor and ability to spread joy make him a favorite among all who meet him.

Client Feedback:

"My sessions with Domino have been transformative. His calming presence instantly puts me at ease, allowing me to open up and engage in therapy more effectively. There's something incredibly therapeutic about having Domino by my side – he offers a sense of comfort and understanding that's hard to put into words."

Experience Animal-Assisted Therapy with Domino

At Stable Minds, we recognize the profound impact that animals, especially dogs, can have on our mental well-being. Domino's presence in therapy sessions offers clients a unique and comforting experience. Whether it's his gentle gaze, his wagging tail, or simply the warmth of his presence, Domino has a way of making therapy sessions more approachable and effective.

If you're interested in experiencing the benefits of animal-assisted therapy, consider booking a session with Domino. And remember, on this National Dog Day, take a moment to appreciate the special dogs in your life, for they offer love and support in ways words can't capture.
