Meet Star!

Born 8-12-12, Star lives up to her name and loves to be the 'star' of the show. Like most Bichon Frise, Star has never met a person she didn't love at first sight. She has been coming to work at Melanie Sivley Counseling since she was about 6 months old. She greets her clients in the waiting room with a wagging tail and escorts them back to her office, where she loves to cuddle in peoples laps. Star always seem to know when clients need comforting and has a magic touch lowering clients anxiety levels.  For anyone that does not like dogs, she is happy to curl up and take a nap. Bichon Frise have the added benefit of not shedding, making it easier for people with dog allergies to be around her.


Therapy dogs provide many benefits, including lowering stress hormones and increasing the levels of endorphins and oxytocin. Her hobbies include going for long walks in the park and 'getting her puppy on' with her friends in doggy daycare.
