Who We Are

-Since 2005-

We provide canine assisted therapy to the public in schools, hospitals, libraries, nursing and healing facilities and for other community organizations throughout the Fox Valley area.

In achieving this mission, the club also functions to further advance and refine the therapy skills of experienced handlers and their canine counterparts.

This is accomplished through participation in seminars, specialized training sessions, and unique educational opportunities that build our proficiency and strengthen the dog and handler bond in a fun, encouraging and supportive environment.

About Us

Our Club

Our club is comprised of dog enthusiasts of all kinds. Our talented club members are business-owners, educators, retirees, and stay-at-home moms & dads. We reside in and serve the communities in the Fox Valley area of Northern Illinois including Kendall, Kane and DuPage counties.

Our canine companions are just as varied as our membership. Our therapy dogs are mixed breeds, purebreds, show dogs, dogs from shelters and rescue organizations, and even couch-potato dogs. These highly trained dogs give us “their all” in every therapy visit we make.

The common thread that makes our Club strong is that we all are volunteers committed to “Making a Difference, One Paw at a Time.” What does this mean? Basically we’re a bunch of hard working, caring people who love working with our dogs and enjoy spending time with others.

Thank You
