Weekly Trick – Who Is Mukaluka The Therapy Dog?

I shared a video two weeks ago of Mukaluka the miniature Schnauzer therapy dog and was interested in learning more about this smart dog.

I Googled information and found quite a few different articles about this dog.  It seems that Mukaluka works at hospitals and mainly with children, helping to entertain and comfort them, if only for a short time, help them forget about their ailments.  Apparently Mukaluka will be part of a mural at the Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center where the children will see something to brighten their days each day, instead of the stark hospital walls.

Mukaluka seems to be helping to teach the Introduction to Therapy Dog training and even helps to teach other dogs new tricks.

There seems to be a Youtube channel with Mukaluka’s tricks and face plastered all over it.  Really such a sweet face it is.

I am going to share some articles and videos for those who are interested in learning more about Mukaluka.  This is one amazing dog.

You can also Google for more information, those seemed to be the most interesting articles and Youtube items that I found.
