The Counselling House would like you to meet Ebony and Ivory, Therapy puppies in training who work with Dr. Laurie and Emerald.


Ebony and Ivory are nearly year old sisters who are Cavapoo’s. Cavapoo is a combination of Cavalier King Charles Spaniel crossed with a miniature poodle.

Ebony and Ivory provides emotional support through her calm demeanour and love for children. She is able to provide comfort, affection, and attention to clients who are experiencing mental health issues or personal struggles within their life.

You are able to engage with Ebony and Ivory as you wish.

An emotional support animal can be beneficial in reducing stress, promote well-being, and increase self-esteem. Having an emotional support animal in the counselling room can provide a comfort to you by allowing them to focus on Ebony and/or Ivory when discussing challenging topics.

Meet Ebony and Ivory and see how she can be helpful in your counselling process!

Thursdays are therapy puppy days in Woodstock!

Emerald travels with our therapy puppies t different locations so that they can interact with staff and/or patients. Would your organization like a visit from Ebony and Ivory, our therapy puppies? Please contact us to make arrangements.
