Montana is a loveable Goldendoodle who adores children and we are excited to have him as a part of the Camp team! He is a registered therapy dog through a rigorous testing protocol by Alliance of Therapy Dogs. The use of therapy dogs in health care facilities is a long-standing method to help ease anxiety and create a less stressful environment. A study in pediatrics found that “pet therapy distracts children from pain perception and may possibly activate comforting thoughts regarding companionship and home.” Montana will happily greet your little one when they come to the Camp as well as give them lots of love and comfort after their appointments. We believe that pup therapy is PAWSITIVELY the best kind of therapy there is to help our campers have a great experience at the dentist!
Montana joined the Fulford family in September 2015 as an 8-week-old puppy and has brought so much joy to the family ever since. He is just as active as they are and has joined them on all their many outdoor adventures including hiking, backpacking, camping, mountain biking, and snowshoeing. He climbed his first 14er this past June and loved every minute of the climb! If you would like to see more of Montana’s outdoor adventures, give him a follow on Instagram @montanathedood. Montana has had his share in the limelight and has been featured on many Instagram sites such as The Ellen Show and Goldendoodles of Instagram. In addition, he has been the featured dog on the LA News Circle 7 spotlight. Montana currently models leashes and collars for Sloppy Chops Co. one of our Adventure Pass partners. Montana newest adventure is becoming one of the therapy dog teams with Dr. Rae at the Lafayette Library for the Paws to Read program.
