The three year-old class at Haywood Community College’s Regional Center for the Advancement of Children recently enjoyed a visit from Sequoia, a Golden Retriever therapy dog. Handlers Jeff and Cindy Soell demonstrated to the kids how this therapy dog is used to teach the core values of character education in schools.
According to her website, Sequoia practices patience, kindness, respect, cooperation, and acceptance. The best three words to describe her are - delicate, gentle and quiet. Therapy dogs have a calm demeanor, gentle disposition, and are friendly to strangers. Sequoia is trained to give attention, affection, and comfort to people in schools, hospitals, and retirement and nursing homes. Sequoia is a registered, licensed, and insured member of Therapy Dogs Inc., a caring network of individuals who are willing to share special animals with people and bring happiness and cheer to all.
