Pet-Assisted Therapy


Therapy dogs are known to be a calming presence during therapy. This calming effect can reduce anxiety, lower blood pressure, decrease aggression, relieve stress, and diminish agitation in clients. 

You can learn more about therapy dogs at the “Therapy Dogs International” website www.tdi-dog.org. If you would like to make an appointment with Sampson please e-mail alan@owenscounseling.com or call the office at 847-854-4333. Sampson looks forward to meeting you soon.


Sampson Owens

Sampson has been a certified pet therapy dog for 3 years. He received his credentials from the Canine Good Citizen Program, which means he succeeded in passing a rigorous test of temperament, commands, walking, reactions to people, distractions, and separations from his owner. He also passed as being super handsome.

Sampson is passionate about pretty much everything, but if he had to pick a top three, they would be making appearances at events, giving friendly snuggles, and fetching the mail. 

Sampson is very technologically savvy, and can be reached on his very own Instagram page at @sampson_says.
