Meet Barkley the Therapy Dog

My name is Barkley and I am an English Cream Golden Retriever and certified therapy dog with Keystone Pets Enhanced Therapy Services (KPETS). My Birthday is October 9, 2020.

I love children and my favorite part of the day is when they read me stories. My favorite toy is a baby lambchop and my favorite thing to eat is doggie peanut butter! I know over 50 tricks, and I am working on my Expert Trick Title.

ACHIEVEMENTS: Advanced Trick Title *AKA Good Citizen, *AKA Star Puppy, *Animal Actors Black Card over 100 therapy dog visits.
