Honey, Our Therapy Dog🐾
Honey is one of the newest and the youngest members of Team Leach. She is a small English F1B Teddy Bear Goldendoodle which makes her the perfect therapy dog for our Alpharetta pediatric dentist office. Weighing just 15 pounds, she is the perfect size for our patients! She was born from a litter of Pyro and Adele on May 27, 2018 at Smeralgia Farms and was hand picked by her coat and temperament test results to be here at Michael J. Leach D.D.S. Pediatric Dentistry.
Honey was the perfect fit for our office because of her Pawsitive Power which includes her keen ability to interact with others and low allergy, non-shedding coat.
She attended Puppy Dog Prep School and was specially trained to work in our office. She is currently awaiting her American Kennel Club Therapy Dog title as she has completed hundreds of visits since beginning at the office in January of 2019.
Honey can be found greeting patients, snuggling those patients who need extra love and attention, or receiving Cheerios from our patients as she shows off her latest tricks. She has been a wonderful addition to our child friendly office by offering comfort, a pawsitive distraction and companionship to any of our nervous, anxious or exceptional patients or those who just need a little reassurance. Honey really enjoys her job and brings out the joy in everyone she comes into contact with.
The Leach family believed that adding a therapy dog to their dentist office for children was the best investment they could make; they were right! Who wouldn’t want to snuggle an adorable bundle of fur while getting their teeth cleaned?
During her free time she is with her furever family, the Leach family. She is their first family pet as they have a number of allergies in their own household. During her free time she likes to nap, eat, play frisbee, zoom in the backyard, hang out the car window and sometimes likes to get into mischief and roll in the mud and puddles. Her favorite treat is a puppuccino!
