Dog therapy at the Hub

Yesterday at the Helmsdale Village Hub we welcomed Bess the collie and her owner Nikki. Bess is a PAT (Pet As Therapy) dog and has been assessed to make sure she is safe to work with both older and younger people.

Bess was a huge hit with one of our Hub members in particular. Hub staff found themselves getting quite emotional at how attached she immediately became to Bess and how happy she was for the rest of the afternoon. The lady had once owned a collie herself and spoke enthusiastically about her experience as a dog owner. A number of our other members also reminisced about old family dogs as well.

We are hoping to see Bess back at the Hub again very soon!
