Hi there! I'm Luka! Together, my mom and I provide animal- assisted therapy. She says I help her clients with emotion regulation, trust, socialization, self-esteem and management of anxiety and depression. All I know is that I enjoy showing off my toys, playing hide-and-seek, learning tricks, and sucking on my tennis ball during sessions! On my days off, I love to go on walks, stalk little lizards, and find sun spots to take naps in. I have been trained through Ideal Dog, and I now hold membership with Paws for Friendship Inc. Let's play together soon, or maybe just talk and cuddle!
Oh hey, human! My name is Baymax (you know, the big white healing robot from Big Hero 6?). My parents named me after that guy, because like him, I love to make people feel better. Ever since I was a baby, my favorites have always been snuggling, giving gentle kisses, and making new friends. With help from my parents, I went to school and worked really hard to be a good therapy dog. I earned my AKC Canine Good Citizen title and graduated from Petco’s Positive Dog Training class. My favorite teacher, Abby, helped me learn a lot of the skills I will need for animal assisted therapy. She helped me be a better listener and master of ignoring distracting animals like silly cats, curious lizards, and energetic hamsters so I can focus on doing my job. For over four months, I learned how to properly say hello to strangers and practice good self-control in a lot of fun places like the Mt. Pleasant Farmer’s market, hardware stores, libraries, bookstores, Joe Riley Waterfront Park, and lots and lots of shopping centers. I loved every minute of it! My goal in life is to help people feel happy and good about themselves. It’s the highlight of my day when I see a smile on someone’s face. I am so excited to work at Wildflower and bring joy to your life! Hope to shake your hand soon. Love, Baymax.
