Mia and Mac Deagan are two very lovely beagles who are contributing a lot to their local community through their work with Delta Therapy Dogs Australia.
Mac has just retired after over 6 years visiting both a nursing home and more recently the Mental Health Unit at Box Hill Hospital. He was such an asset to the patients and staff - who couldn’t resist such a gorgeous face! Delta Therapy Dogs visit hospitals, nursing homes and other health care facilities to enable patients and staff to participate in pet therapy. The visits enable interaction such as stroking the dog, chatting to them and enjoying their company.
As Mac has stepped down from his role, Mia has now stepped up. Mia started her manners training with us as she attended and passed our Puppy Pre-School with flying colours. Mia then went on to recently graduate into the Delta program and is filling Mac's paws in the same role. She is a delightful girl and it’s a wonderful program that we are thrilled to be able to support as we feel it is invaluable work.
