Animal Therapy

Bella is great therapy for my students. 

I have kids talking, going to the bathroom, reading, being responsible, eating, following 2 step directions and sitting still, all because of this little animal. 

Someone asked me how I trained Bella to be a therapy animal. 
I said: start when they are young, hand feed, have routines, one food is a treat, bring everywhere you go, poke and pull at them....

Then I realized I don't know what it takes to train a therapy animal...all I did was pray and ask God that Bella would be great for my students. 

I am thankful God created Bella perfect for me and my kids.
