Introducing Dozier…Therapy Dog at ECCAC

DeFuniak Springs, FL (July 15, 2018)…Meet Dozier, a trained Great Dane therapy dog and his owner/handler, Angie Nousiainen. Once a month, Dozier and Angie help make the day a little better and brighter for child victims receiving services at the Pierce Family Children’s Advocacy Center in DeFuniak Springs.

Dozier completed four levels of obedience classes at Dog Max, Inc. At 14 months old, Dozier received his Canine Good Citizen Award before being accepted into Therapy Dogs, Inc.  The Alliance of Therapy Dogs, based in Michigan, carries a $5 million liability insurance policy on Dozier.

According to Angie, “Dozier and I visit the lobby area at the center and I have to be within two feet of him at all times. Also, I keep Dozier at least three feet away from other dogs,”
