Artman’s “Bone-A-Fied” Friends

Artman senior living community has expanded its workforce—
but this is not a typical group of new hires. Instead, the community is celebrating a newly trained cadre
of canine companions.
Already a casual extension of the Artman workforce, the staff-owned dogs had been faithfully accompanying
their owners to work each day when Executive Director, Janet Lorenzon, found a way to formalize their status
so they could become bona fide staff members.
Janet arranged for therapy dog training and last spring several of the dogs earned their certification, as well as
the designation of American Kennel Club Good Citizen.
