If you're able, you can donate to us at www.givechoose.org/heelinghouse. No amount is too small and everything is greatly appreciated by both humans and dogs alike!

We know school's looking different for everyone this year, and we want to help! We are happy to announce our new Animal Assisted Supplemental School Program!

Whether you’re looking for social opportunities for your children once school starts, or need some additional help engaging students in a fun, creative way to make schoolwork enjoyable, this is the program for you!

Our new monthly program will allow groups of 10 children to spend time with therapy dogs, work on preexisting schoolwork, destress from all the new changes they are going through, and interact with similarly aged children in a much-needed social setting!

Mondays will be open to elementary-aged children enrolled in virtual learning. These one hour sessions will allow participants to engage with fellow students and therapy dogs as they play games, participate in fun group activities, and destress! Groups will be separated by grade level. Grades K-2 will meet Mondays at 12:30-1:30pm and Grades 3-5 will meet on Mondays from 3:00-4:00pm. Monthly registration is $100 per child. Space is limited and advanced registration is required! Registration can be found on our website at: https://heelinghouse.org/children-services/animal-assisted-supplemental-school-program/

For structured preexisting homeschool pods, we welcome your entire pod to visit us for a 1.5 hour session where we will work with you to utilize therapy dogs in an educational activity fitting your curriculum that makes it fun and engaging! After school work is done we’ll play some fun games with the dogs and students, engage in some light physical activity, and destress with our wonderful dogs! Monthly registration is $140 per child and space is limited so call us at 703-661-6610 or email us at [email protected] today to get your homeschool pod registered!

Thank you for allowing my boys to assist with your therapy dog training. They are still talking about the experience a week later.
A special thank you to The Heeling House for always hosting a station at Discovery Elementary to help students understand the different challenges that people face every day. Bear and Dana are now regulars at Discovery! ☺️ Willow was amazing too! I cannot express how thankful we are for you all!
What is the address?
I posted some photos from today's agility fundraiser. I didn't get photos of everyone, but I hope everyone had a great time. It sure looks like both the dogs and their owners really enjoyed the event. https://moringello.smugmug.com/PhotoGalleries/Events/Heeling-House-Agility-Fundraiser-2018-09-02
Mr. Bobo want to join heeling house therapy dog
I want to say a huge thank you to Heeling House for the wonderful cards made by the children. My dog Larri (she is studying to become a therapy dog) had emergency surgery to get a pacemaker put in. Kathy had the kids make her get well cards. We absolutely love them and definitely made us all feel better. We still read them aloud to her. We have been on complete bed (cage) rest for almost 6 weeks. Seeing these cards hang on her cage has helped raise our spirits. We go back to the vet on Monday and hopefully get the all clear to start living life to the fullest. More photos in the comment section.
Hi! is therapy dog class happening tonight at 7:30pm or do we have this week off?
