Golden Retriever, Luna the therapy dog is now a regular member in one of our Tuesday programmes at the Champion Centre. She is proving to be very popular with children, caregivers and staff.
Luna's owner/trainer, Martina, is a speech and language therapy student. When she approached the Centre to see if we were interested in having Luna join one of our programmes we were very excited. After checking with all families we said a big 'yes'! Luna is currently training with the KURI dog training centre.
Luna plays an important role in sessions. She can be a calming presence, as well as helping to motivate children in their activities. She's also a lot of fun.
The Champion Centre is administered by the Christchurch Early Intervention Trust, and is registered with the Charities Commission (CC22708). Gifts of over $5 are eligible for tax rebates.
