Maya is a rescue puppy being trained to be a therapy dog with Off Leash K9 Training. Depending on the need, Maya can sit with a client and provide comfort, or she can provide pressure if someone is feeling anxious or stressed. Maya works with Avery Cook, and Licensed Clinical Social worker for CAPS.
When Cook adopted Maya, she recognized Maya's good temperament and thought she'd do well as a therapy dog.
Maya began her training in fall 2016 and has been working at CAPS beginning spring semester 2017.
