Occupational Therapist Jenn Sivak of Methodist Rehabilitation Center brought Puma to visit the Lower School. Puma is a trained Facility dog that works with patients at Methodist. Dogs like Puma are raised by volunteers, then complete a six to nine month training with Canine Companion instructors. Ms. Sivak explained how Puma helps patients and what his daily life is like, then fielded questions from the students. As each class left, they had a chance to pet Puma on the way back to their rooms.
