Monty, aka Montana, is our therapy dog extraordinaire who provides greeting services to all clients. Monty makes herself available for pats, cuddles and licks and loves sitting on the couch next to clients when sessions can be a little emotional.
Monty is a labrador cross beagle who was a rescue dog from Sippy Creek Animal Refuge. She was rescued by Natasha and her husband at age 18 months so her life before her days as a therapy dog is a little unknown.
Monty has undergone training with Therapy Dogs Australia and has worked very hard to receive her dogploma, allowing her to be part of the therapeutic process with clients.
Outside of her work hours Monty loves getting outside for walks and swims and also enjoys napping during the daytime.
If you would like to have Monty as part of your sessions, she is available two days a week so please let reception know when you make your appointment.
