On Monday night at 8pm, be sure to tune in for our newest episode of Hope Saves the Day on Autism Radio.
We Sit down and Talk To Mark Condon About his work with Therapy Dog and his Famous Dog Dutchess
About Our Guest Mark Condon is a professor of biology at Dutchess Community College and co-founder, board president, and trainer with the therapy dog organization Canine Link. Dutchess is a therapy dog who is especially fond of her work with individuals with autism. Although an inherited disease resulted in surgical removal of her eyes at age eight, Dutchess adjusted to her vision loss and has retained her joyful, gregarious personality, allowing her to continue to do the work that she loves. Mark co-authored a recently-released children's book about Dutchess' work called A Day With Dutchess: Life Lessons from a Blind Therapy Dog. Mark and Dutchess enjoy giving presentations at conferences about the benefits of therapy dogs and service dogs. They also serve as ambassadors for HeARTs Speak, an organization of artists who use their talents to promote adoption of shelter pets. They live with three cats in Poughkeepsie, New York.
