Our Therapy Dogs

We are a dog-friendly clinic. If you are not comfortable around dogs or have dog allergies, please let us know in advance so we can treat you in a dog-free room. If your dog is potty trained and well socialized with other dogs and people, you are welcome to bring him/her to your appointment.

Meet-Our-Team-PicassoPicasso is a senior border collie mix (a.k.a. urban black and white). He loves to roll on carpet and receive daily belly massages. In his younger days, he could run up to 35 MPH after seagulls on the beach. He’s easy to be around, and is gentle with all. Picasso’s job is to lower peoples blood pressure and make them smile.

Meet-Our-Team-PokiPoki is a middle-aged bichon/poodle cross who is quick to alert everyone when someone new walks into the office. Poki’s previous work experience includes sitting on laps in a hospice setting, and working with patients being treated by a counseling psychologist. In her free time, Poki enjoys massages, walks around University Village and exploring the smells of Seattle.

ChunkyChunky is a “Puggle” – a half pug half beagle mix.  Chunky is VERY food motivated (hence his name), but he (his owner Mylan) is constantly working towards maintaining his good health by avoiding any extra treats, going on long walks and hikes, and replacing food with lots and lots of cuddles and belly rubs. He LOVES belly rubs and getting scratched behind his floppy ears. He will often let his little puggle “smile” appear to show his appreciation to anyone who will kindly oblige.

ZiggyZiggy is a young pup, rescued from Louisiana through the local agency, AARF. He is a pointer/hound mix and thrives on greeting people with his goofy grin and exuberant spirit.  He loves to play at any moment, and looks forward to meeting other dogs or humans any minute of the day.
