Hudson is an English Cream Golden Retriever. He has spent his eleven years of life serving the staff and students at EATC as an emotional support dog. Hudson can always tell when someone is upset. He gravitates toward them and knows his job is to comfort them. In return, he gets treats, belly rubs, and more attention than any dog could dream of.
Winnie is our two-year-old golden retriever. She loves to run, play, and fetch the ball. She is patient and tolerant with the students, as they give her lots of affection. Both of our dogs are important parts of the therapeutic aspect of the program. Winnie and Hudson help the students learn to use a positive outlet for their emotions. Most importantly, the dogs help the program feel like a home to our students.
