Lead on Yogi!

Sep 14, 2012

In Japan, a special dog named Yogi walks the halls of the Shizuoka Children’s Hospital.

This is no ordinary dog. It is a highly trained “Therapy Dog,” part of a special program that aims to speed the recovery of children in hospitals.

Amway Japan was introduced to the Therapy Dog program through the Tyler Foundation, which helps children with childhood cancer. The program has touched the lives of 980 children in Japan since the first Therapy Dog, Bailey, began working with children in 2010.

Yogi was trained in the US with special skills to provide affection and comfort to children in times of pain and stress.

We’ll be following Yogi’s progress, and hope to share stories on the impact he is making on children in Japan.

Thanks to Kafuu Toh for sharing this story.
