Meet the newest BOE-approved therapy dog, Chester. Chester is a two-year-old mixed breed rescue from Texas owned by JFS special education teacher Emily Hungarter.
He has his Canine Good Citizen Title/Certification and is certified with the Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dog Group. He knows quite a few tricks and even won two American Kennel Club trick titles.
Chester started a few weeks ago on Wednesday afternoons and is now there Wednesdays mornings with students. Next year, a schedule will be developed for both Chester and Koia. We are excited to have these dogs in the building to help our students and staff throughout the school year.
