To celebrate National Pet Month in April, Stocks Hall Burscough welcomed Pet Therapy Dog, Brad…everyone’s new best friend!
Brad the Miniature Poodle is a wonderful sweet natured dog who kindly visits Stocks Hall Burscough accompanied by his owner and ‘Pets As Therapy’ Volunteer, Eileen on a regular basis. Generously sharing warmth and kindness with all those who need a little tender loving care and special attention, Brad is delightful little character who can perform tricks, entertaining the crowd with his playful approach and interaction.
Speaking on behalf of Stocks Hall Burscough, Activities Staff, Denise Corvan said “Therapy dogs such as Brad can have a positive impact on the mood of people living in our homes as well as our visitors. Regular visits from Brad have shown to relieve loneliness among less social or outgoing residents who find group interaction difficult. Not all residents want to handle the dog and some will benefit just from watching Brad interact with others. It’s been wonderful to welcome him as part of the Stocks family here at the home.”
Stocks Hall would like to thank Brad, Eileen and Pets As Therapy for this wonderful opportunity.
