David and Griffin,
his 16-year-old dog
For the past 25 years, my wife and I have pursued a mission of care and love for animals and have explored the animal-human connection. We live on a small farm in Ipswich surrounded by horses, dogs, cats, ducks, chickens and even a rooster.
Our mission has included therapeutic riding for children and adults with special needs, training our dogs as MSPCA therapy dogs to visit nursing homes and work with senior citizens, and directly working for and supporting both local and national animal shelters.
David received his certification in small animal massage therapy from the Bancroft School in Worcester, MA, a nationally recognized leader in the field. David is also a member of the International Association of Animal Massage and Bodywork (IAAMB).
