This is Flexi, a 4 year old border collie, who is first and foremost, my adored pet. Since he was 6 months old, we have been training to work in the community as Pets as Therapy volunteers.

This is a fantastic program, where volunteers work with their own pets, to bring joy, comfort and companionship to individuals who appreciate being able to connect with a friendly animal. The program has a variety of animals including, dogs, cats, bunnies, even a pony, who visit in the community all over Sydney.

Flexi is one of the few animals in the program that works specifically in mental health units and he loves his work as much as the clients love him. He has a special way that he connects and comforts. If someone is particularly unwell or unhappy, he will seek them out and sit right with them. He comforts and helps in a way that has no pressure and always brings smiles, laughter and happiness!
