In the words of Leo's trainer and handler, Andrea: 

 

"Leo is a certified therapy dog. He is a licensed member of Therapy Dogs, International and a Canine Good Citizen. He has an amazingly calm disposition and has been so easy to train. 

His primary job is "cool school dog" at an elementary school.  While working at the school, his job includes greeting kids in the morning and working with students that struggle with transitions or behaviors.  He also hangs out in a second grade classroom where he likes to watch kids work and be read to.  

Leo visits an assisted living/memory care facility as well.  While there, he spends time in the gathering areas being loved on and sharing his golden smile.  

When not working, Leo loves to play frisbee and go for walks.  He enjoys overseeing the activities of the critters in the backyard.  But most of all, Leo loves his people and enjoys cuddles on the couch!

 

Leo is just fabulous! He is our fourth golden retriever, but the most amazing so far. He just gets people. You can’t help love on him because he is beautiful and sweet."
