Meet Jake and Kelly
Jake is a 9 year old Labrador that is a certified service and therapy dog. He works with his trainer, Kelly. Between Kelly’s strong educational background and Jake’s ability to show love and listen, they make a dynamic team. They work mostly with students kindergarten through eighth grade. Jake’s presence especially makes a difference for students who are lacking confidence and students with special needs. In fact, evidence has shown that therapy dogs cans improve social skills, boost self-esteem, and can stimulate memory and problem solving skills. We love having Jake and Kelly on our Achieve team!
