Piper and Lily The Support Dogs

Our gorgeous little Maltese Shi Tzhu's (low allergy/ hypoallergenic/non shedding) with a gentle and kind nature. are able to provide emotional support, companionship and relief from symptoms related to mental health such as anxious distress/ low mood. 

Piper and Lily  are often in session on Mondays Wednesdays Fridays. 


Lily loves her lunch time walks. She loves pats and playing with her toys. She will most likely sleep through sessions and you will hear her snoring in the background. 

Lily is a very laid back dog (some may say she is on the lazy side) .

Piper is a very friendly and outgoing Malshy (Maltese Shi Tzhu) full of energy and loves people, walks and snuggles. She is thriving in her training role as a therapy assistant. Piper is 18 months old and is still learning. She loves to sit on our clients knee and have all the head rubs she can get.
