Therapy Dog, TDI
The Serious Stuff
Hi! I’m Wrigley, the Lifeworks Therapy Dog. I am a TDI (Therapy Dog International) certified therapy dog. I try really hard to remember everything I learned, but you can help by not petting me if I happen to jump when I get excited to meet you. I am also a certified trick dog!
I am in the Ankeny office on most Mondays and Wednesday mornings and in the Des Moines office the rest of the week. If you would like to have me spend time with you and your therapist, please tell your therapist you want to meet me. I know I would love to meet you!
I was born on December 22, 2013. My mom, Ava, lives at Iowa Golden Doodle Dandies, located on a farm in Humbolt, Iowa. Rick and Jodi Pederson (my Mom’s owners) are awesome and often have puppies just like me.
The People Lover
I love belly rubs, playing with friends, chasing toys, and just being near people. I really enjoy meeting new people but am sometimes shy around young children and men wearing hats. That doesn’t mean I don’t like them!
Ask me to sit, shake hands, give you a high five, spin, heal, or jump. Hint: there are treats at the front desk to reward me for my tricks. Please don’t share your snacks with me, they make my tummy hurt.
