Service Dog “Nash” Visits Goshen Club For Lesson On Therapy Dogs

He’s only three years old, but he’s busy travelling the country.

Nash, an English Cream Golden Retriever, is on a Paws For Love tour. Along with his owners Sean and Christina Conlon, they’re drawing attention to the benefits therapy dogs can provide.

Lippert helped bring the trio to the Goshen Club and members were excited to spend time with the four-legged ambassador.

“We got in touch with Jason Lippert. They funded our tour through the Lippert Cares program. Sharing Nash with Lippert employees and others in the community has been amazing,” Christina said.

In the community, Nash has been spending time with police officers, firefighters, schools and children like those at the Boys & Girls Club in Goshen.

“It was a special afternoon for the kids to get to spend time with Nash and learn about what these dogs provide in helping people,” said Goshen director Tanner Pickett.

Both Christina and Sean say seeing the faces of kids when Nash is in the room is rewarding.

“It’s been so interesting to see their reactions,” Christina said.

The couple wants people to learn the science behind these dogs and they way they can help kids.

“That’s the challenge we’re helping tackle,” Sean said. “There’s a difference between a certified therapy dogs and others.”

He says the dogs can help reduce stress and depression and improve test scores for some children. But the end goal is simply for Nash to serve as an ambassador and encourage people to explore what therapy dogs have to offer.

And despite all the attention and his internet fame, Nash seems to simply enjoy the loving touch from the kids.
