Mehelu – Therapeutic Visitation Dog in Training
Mehelu is a fun loving hypoallergenic Portuguese water dog. She likes to run around, swim and play fetch. Once training is complete you can request a visit from Mehelu during your orthodontic visit!
Therapeutic visitation dogs play a special role in society. Therapy dogs can help patients suffering from disorders such as Anxiety, severe disruptive behavioral disorder, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), and ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder). Studies have shown that when we touch dogs, it has a healing power because hormones like dopamine and beta-endorphin are released.
