The use of your dog as a pet partner is an ideal goal for many
dog owners that see the benefits of visiting sick, elderly and challenged individuals. Karen has many years experience
as both an evaluator and therapy pet partner. Karen is the co-author of the book Therapy
The Animal-Human Healing Partnership, published by Prometheus
Books. She would love to help you and your dog become pet partners!
One of Karen's personal goals is to assist teens in need through the use of a shelter volunteer program that allows
teens to learn and apply care and training skills. Karen believes the unconditional responsive attention of dogs
allows for a feeling of self-worth that is vital to the healthy development of young adults.
