Hi there,

My name is Matilda and I am an English Mastiff.  I am a play therapy dog and I love to be with kids.  Truth be told, I love to be with people of all ages.  This is why I have decided to introduce myself.

I would like to let you know that sometimes I may be here in the office working with Jennifer Celli.  I am a Certified Therapy Dog registered with Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs.  I am also a Canine Good Citizen through the American Kennel Club.  Jennifer and I have been fortunate to attend several of trainings in the field and to even receive supervision through the International Institute for Animal Assisted Play Therapy.

My family thinks I was born to do this.  Actually, it’s in my blood.  My father was a therapy dog too.  I am a sweet girl and very large.  Here is a picture of me in Jennifer’s office patiently waiting for the session to begin.  Maybe we could meet someday.

I have one personal request : please leave all furry friends at home because this is work time for me.  Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

My best,
