Tripawds make the best therapy dogs. Tripawds founder Spirit Jerry was a certified therapy dog.
He brought smiles to kids and adults alike, and the experience was a life-changing event for all of us.
Many Tripawds members are also bringing joy and love in hospital and educational settings, like Bruiser from Colorado.
Bruiser works with Youth and Pet Survivors (YAPS), a program based at Children’s Hospital of Colorado that “helps to heal the soul and lets children be children again.”
Earlier this year, Bruiser was profiled in this touching news story:

Agreed! AJax has been working with The Good Dog Foundationi n NYC and going into schools to help kids with their reading programs. He loves it, and they love to talk about his special characteristics

Tracy, Maggie’s Mom
Ajax, send us your story, we would love to publish it! Yes, this video requires kleenex for sure.
My wonderful tripod, Maggie, is registered with Pet Partners. She passed the test on her own and then using a stroller which makes her the perfect height to be petted by nursing home residents. She just earned her AKC Advanced Therapy Dog title. Also, there is another great reason to be tested with Pet Partners, TDI, or Therapy Dogs, Inc. We live close to Purdue University and the veterinary school/clinic offers a 50% discount to service dogs and to therapy dogs who are registered with a national group.
Becky, that’s terrific! I love how the stroller helps. Would you like to share some more about your experience as a therapy dog team? I would love to feature you both in our Tripawd Tuesday spotlight! Email us for details.
