About Our Dogs

Belle

My name is Belle and I am a princess. I am a three-year old Golden Retriever and an active psychiatric service dog for one of our founding members. I perform tasks such as brace, break hands and know when there is a need for deep pressure therapy. I can sense when a panic attack or dizzy spell is approaching and alert my handler to leverage the resources needed to manage the situation.

My name is Buddy. I am a mix of Border Collie and Flat Coat Retriever. My people say that I am 12 years old, but I act more like a teenager! I am our lead therapy dog and enjoy visiting places where I can bring comfort and joy. 

I enjoy making friends and volunteering at The Counseling Center of Grayslake. I am happiest when I am "working" or playing Frisbee.
