“I love to give hugs!”
“I give warmth and security”
“I comfort and calm with my body (2.5 lbs!)”
“I relieve stress”
Meet Theo the Therapy Dog! This fuzzy lapdog is specially designed to function as a comforting companion. With a slightly heavy weight, this lovable and cuddly friend can provide a sense of security to children with sensory input needs. Theo’s soft, floppy body can lay across your lap or shoulders, and even sit-up beside you.
He’s just the right size for carrying along to the Dr.’s office, the dentist, over-night visitations, or any unfamiliar environment that can raise stress levels.
And, he’s the perfect lapdog for older adults who are struggling with Alzheimer’s, dementia or social isolation. His warm, heavy body feels lifelike, which can help to relieve stress and sharpen focus, without the responsibility of caring for a live animal.
The beads, fur, paw-pads, ears, eyes and nose all provide unique textures for tactile exploration. The hook and loop pocket in his tummy holds a pouch of ceramic beads that emits a gentle lavender aroma. Remove the pouch to heat in the microwave, or chill in the fridge, then replace, for soothing temperatures anyone can love!
