Newton is a Yorkshire terrier who was born on September 26, 2017. As an eight-week-old puppy Newton joined the staff at Rebound. The staff at Rebound Mental Health started wondering if a therapy dog would help our families. During a difficult reconciliation case a child requested to bring her dog to help her feel calmer. The staff had a moment and as a result decided to incorporate animal support while providing therapeutic services. During Newton’s tenure at Rebound he has completed puppy class, beginning class, intermediate class, trick class and the Canine Good Citizen class. Newton’s trainer is Amy Vaughn at Spirit Ranch Dog Training, with her constant support and guidance, Newton is a great provider in our office. The one and a half years of training had its moments of great accomplishment and other moments filled with slow progress. But it has all been worth it when we see a client’s face brighten when Newton wags his tail and begs to give a kiss or when Newton curls up in a child’s lap to provide comfort when talking about difficult topics.
