Meet St Vincent’s Private’s newest recruit

18 Aug 2022

Meet Rosie, St Vincent's Private Melbourne’s new therapy dog.

Therapy dogs like Rosie work in settings such as hospitals, nursing homes and schools. They’ve been shown to be a welcome addition because they reduce stress and anxiety levels of both patients and staff.  

Not just adorable, Rosie is a fully trained Therapy Dog. She has been through rigorous checks and training with Therapy Animals Australia, to meet the high standards required to certify as a therapy dog.

Rosie joined the team in mid-August and she certainly succeeded in putting smiles on everyone’s faces. Let's all give a round-of-a-paws to St Vincent's newest recruit!

The team think Rosie is one top dog and they look forward to having her visit again soon.
