Visit child psychiatry Männedorf

A big THANK YOU to our four-legged friends. It cannot be described with words. We are grateful that you accompany us.

There was a lot going on in the break area of the Brüschhalde child psychiatric clinic. Jumping over obstacles with the dogs, hiding the toys or sitting on the ground and petting the dog. It’s just always touching how the children get involved with the dogs, each in their own way.

At the end, there was a wolf picture as a power card and an ABRI bear from HP Switzerland GmbH for each child. Thank you for this bear-strong donation. We are looking forward to visiting you again next time.

Monika, her team and the associated dogs have responded extremely sensitively to the needs of children and adolescents. Within a very short time, all children and adolescents, even the anxious, were interactive and joyful with a dog. Heartfelt thanks from the Centre for Child Psychiatry Brüschhalde”

Field report Esma & Päde

After an odyssey of many treats and different dog trainers (1.5 years – 2 different HT – different methods), none of which could help us with our problem, we landed in January 2023 through a friend at the dog therapy and school Bodmer.

The daily challenge was in the dog encounters. Our shepherd-mix Kan (street dog from Ibiza) escalated on the leash with pretty much every dog and this regardless of distance. We had practically given up hope of getting this problem under control, as we were told by the previous dog trainers that Kan had a trauma and that nothing would help.

Today, 3.5 months with Monika, we are able to walk past dogs at close range without any escapades and even train with them in a confined space on the dog training ground. Monika helped and helps us to understand the dog as a DOG and to act and react correctly. Every hour/minute at the dog therapy and school Bodmer is an enrichment for dog and human.

Greetings and have a nice day

“The visit of the therapy dogs from the ABRI association was a highlight of the holiday week 2022. Thanks to the empathy of the dogs and their owners, the children opened up within a short time and enjoyed the petting and cuddling with the fur balls very much.”
