Rugby and Eddy are the Little Warriors Be Brave Ranch Facility Trauma Dogs Extraordinaire. As co-therapists, they support individual therapy, group therapy, as well as family sessions. Our four legged friends enhance our Trauma-Informed healing environment through providing relational supports, sensing and supporting positive emotional regulation, providing healthy touch and therapeutic play opportunities.
Animal Assisted Therapy can be especially beneficial to assist with overcoming trauma. Through unconditional love, the calming effects animals have on our nervous systems, and a nonjudgmental being can be easier to connect with, this trifecta is how animals can make trauma work a more comfortable and gentle process.
As you can imagine, Rugby and Eddy are our most popular team members. But they are expensive….
Toys, tennis balls (their favourite!), dog beds, leashes, brushes, pet insurance and of course some treats!
Used and in good condition would be great! We have some kids that come with no luggage or really worn out bags. If you have any of these laying around send them our way!
