Home / Community Life / Aveo Durack Aged Care welcome companion dogs Polly and Ebby!

Residents and staff at Aveo Durack Aged Care have welcomed two new companion dogs to the village to offer companionship to residents. Polly, a 7 and a half year old King Charles Cavalier and Ebby, a 3 year old Pembroke Corgi who is a former show dog work closely with multiple staff members at Aveo Durack Aged Care and spend a lot of time giving companionship to residents living with dementia. Polly and Ebby continue to undergo human-canine training which provides them with the necessary skills to work in an animal-assisted therapy setting. Both Polly and Ebby are adored by the residents and staff who enjoy seeing their happy faces regularly.
