Cooper is a 7-week old male Golden Retriever who came to live at YBGR this April. Cooper is in training to become a Therapy Dog.
Cooper will join Emmy Lou, a 7-year old female Golden Retriever, who is the Ranch’s current certified therapy dog through the Delta Society and Pet Partners.
There are many benefits to Pet Therapy for both the mental and physical health of YBGR youth, including; providing comfort, lowering anxiety, creating play activity, and offering unconditional love.
It takes a special dog to be a Therapy Dog at Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch and we look forward to young Cooper growing up to join our team.
