Puppy Therapy Program
What started 15 years ago as casually bringing our puppies to retirement homes, and post-secondary schools for puppy cuddles has turned into a program where we consistently get to share our puppies with multiple locations within the Fraser Valley. Not only is our puppy therapy beneficial for the attendees, but it provides our puppies with key socialization opportunities before heading off to their forever homes. This directly supports what we strive for as an ethical breeder; providing well-rounded, loved, socialized puppies for families.
MySchnauzers Puppy Therapy Program exists to give people in all life stages the opportunity for connection and companionship by bringing puppies throughout the year to those wanting to experience the positive, therapeutic benefits and joy of puppies.
I can’t recommend this enough. These puppies are amazing, and you can tell how loved they all are/well taken care of. Jazzlynn and her team and extremely professional and always show up on time and are great at communicating. Not only this, but she is extremely kind. If you are looking for a mood booster, this is it!!
Would highly recommend this service! Jazzlynn and her team were professional, on time and delivered everything they said they would in a puppy experience. The residents loved interacting with these adorable puppies and the smiles they generated were huge! Will definitely have them in to visit again
We have had MySchnauzers come to Pacific Life Bible College many times and it never disappoints! Jazzlynn and her crew provide an amazing experience for our students and staff! Out of all of our school events, ‘Puppy Day’ is always a fan favorite. It is all thanks to MySchnauzers! I would highly recommend this service to anyone and everyone!
We can’t thank you enough for the fantastic puppy visit yesterday at BC Children’s Hospital. Your 10 beautiful and socially engaged pups truly made the day of so many of our patients, staff, and families! We were overwhelmed at the positive impact it had. I also want to thank you for your professional approach to the visit. You were incredibly prepared and understood the requirements of visiting in an acute care setting.
