WELCOME TO CANINE LINK

Canine Link is a 501 (c3) not-for--profit therapy dog organization operating in New York’s Hudson Valley, Manhattan, The Berkshires , Litchfield and Fairfield County, Connecticut. We train and certify therapy dog teams (handler and dog) and provide therapy dog services to individuals in hospitals, nursing homes, schools, and other facilities.

WHAT DO CANINE LINK TEAMS DO?

As a therapy dog team, you and your dog can provide emotional support and begin to improve people's lives in health care, educational, and other community facilities. Therapy dog visits have been shown to have positive impacts on many, including critically ill patients, children learning to read, individuals with developmental disabilities, and veterans returning home from service.

HOW CAN MY DOG AND I BECOME A CANINE LINK TEAM?

After an initial evaluation, volunteers and their dogs are certified as Canine Link teams by graduating from our six- to twelve-session beginner or advanced therapy training program. Your dog must be healthy and loving, have a good temperament, and be at least 3˝ months old. For more information, please contact Executive Director Susan Fireman (email: CanineLinkTherapyDogs@gmail.com - phone: 855-595-4651). Volunteer Applications are available HERE

 

The Small Gardens of Millbrook Tour to benefit Canine Link will take place on Sunday, June 8th, 2014, from 11:00 to 4:00, rain or shine.

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 on the 8th. Children 12 and under are free. Tickets and additional information can be obtained online or by emailing Michael Poulin at mfpoulin@me.com

Don’t miss a peak at some wonderful small private gardens and see what can be done with small [and some very tiny] plots of land. We have 6 unique gardens. Most are in the village of Millbrook and within a mile of one another; a couple are a short drive away [under 10 minutes].

None of these gardens have been included on previous public tours. They include: a formal garden with a secret woodland stroll; a postage stamp-sized garden high above a stream and in the shadows of an early 1800's Colonial, an impeccable gate-house garden studded with statues, sculpture, urns, and architectural ornamentation. One garden has plants which once belonged to Eleanor Roosevelt.

The starting point for the tour, garden maps and ticket sales is at Twin Brooks Garden Center. They are located on the corner of Franklin Avenue and Route 44, just before you enter the village of Millbrook.

Picnicking is available at the Tribute Garden in Millbrook. Bag lunches can be purchased from Marona’s Market by reserving ahead; please call 845-677-3471.
