Spencer was born in July 2018 in country Victoria to Golden Retriever Mum, Billie and Standard Poodle Dad, Milo. He came to live with us at eight weeks old and now his family has grown to include a 12 year old Jack Russell cross, a cat and some farm animals. Spencer has attended puppy preschool and puppy school and in 2019 will venture into level 1 obedience training. His training will continue through the obedience levels for a long time yet, and will also include an Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) course at some point when he is around 12 – 18 months old.
Spencer brings to therapy a non-judgemental acceptance of all people. He provides unconditional, positive relationships to adults and children. He loves to be with people and brings the element of touch back to therapy, loving to have pats. Spencer is at his happiest when around people and can be calm and quiet or playful and energetic depending on the need at the time.
