Therapy Dogs

Belle therapy dog

Hello everyone!  My name is Belle.  I have the best job in the world!  I spend my days at Hill Top Academy with all the amazing students.  During the school day the students give me treats when I follow directions.  They also pet me and walk with me outside.  Many days I help Mrs. West work with student in the occupational therapy room.  Sometimes the students even brush me!  My other favorite task during the school day is making students that are sad or mad happy again. 

At the end of my work day I go home and play with my two golden siblings.  We run around the yard chasing each other and balls.  I also love to sit in my favorite chair and think about all the great students and staff that I spend my days with at Hill Top Academy.

Lucy Therapy dog

Hi!  I’m the fun loving, energetic therapy dog named Lucy! This Christmas, I’ll be three years old.  I share a birthday with my sister, Belle!  I love wagging my tail and bringing positive energy to the students and staff at Hill Top Academy. My hope is to bring a calming effect to our students within the social emotional learning environment. I hope my presence allows our students to smile, stay more focused, and feel less stressed.  I love to play ball and get belly rubs, but one of my favorite things to do is sneak a treat from Dr. Thompson’s office!      



Stanley Therapy Dog

Hi, I'm Stanley.  I'm 10 years old and have been working at Hill Top Academy for 8 years. I spend most of my time in a high school classroom, but like to visit elementary classrooms and snuggle in with students and LOVE when they read to me. One of my favorite hobbies is rolling in stinky stuff and the kids love me so much, they give me baths in the nurse's office!

I have a rescue dog and 2 human siblings at home.  I love my job at Hill Top and feel it is a privilege to work with all of the students.
