Are you shy, stressed out or insecure? Perhaps you are overwhelmed by anxiety, loneliness or depression? To experience the magic of a mind-blowing transformation of a dog assisted therapy, join us without hesitation, prejudice and expectation. A cheerful four-legged companion is close by. Simply ask us about him/her and he/she will immediately run to meet you! All you have to do is open your arms widely and stroke his/her fur.

Are you ready to embrace the transformation of your life?





















At LAPFCARES, we have developed a dog-assisted animal mediation method that is suitable for everyone.
Anxious or phobic young children, stressed out teenagers, autistic individuals, depressed young adults, parents on the verge of burn-out, frail elderly individuals, handicapped individuals, individuals with an auto immune disease, behavioral disorders, or simply individuals who are allergic to dog hair... this method is definitely for you!

This mediation method is simple: we offer individual face-to-face dog therapy sessions in Cape Town, South Africa or online dog therapy sessions via  Zoom video calls.

We will arrange an intimate meeting between you and the therapy dog. A friendly and soothing meeting with a friend is always heart-warming. After this initial meeting with the mediator fur buddy, we will then orchestrate a meeting with life itself.

As an added benefit, we enjoy working with healthcare professionals. We offer you a follow-up service with a video recording of the sessions in order to show the progress achieved through time.

Our face-to-face program allows you to fully experience the tactile and sensory dimension with the therapy dog. Patting the dog, playing games, enjoying cuddles and complicity are the essence of the session. It is an assisted relationship between man and animal, as intimate as possible. Such sessions will allow you to feel finally free to express and be yourself.

We prefer to come to you, a place of your choice and comfort. Whether it is your home or a specialized institution (hospital, retirement home, etc.), anything is possible. Following a written agreement received in advance, we plan and organize the workshops.
If you prefer, we are happy to come to your office for small group and/or individual sessions.

These sessions can be created, depending on your changing needs. They can also be recurring to give your personal development and balance a new dimension.

AROUND CAPE TOWN, South Africa 

Face to Face Mediation Sessions

The remote dog therapy program responds to many requests from people living outside Cape Town and the region of South Africa. It is also a fabulous tool for those who don't take the time to relax, but are in dire need of soothing and unwinding.

The video program also allows children who are allergic to dog hair, to benefit from it. Some of them do not have the option to have a therapy dog come to certain geographical areas or places (departments or hospitals).

Dog-assisted animal mediation gives them access to this wonderful tool for their own well-being. Distance therapy dogs are also excellent for people with autoimmune diseases. It brings them comfort and joy.


TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD!

Sessions by VideoConference

For all those who wish to benefit from this comforting and innovative meeting, videoconferencing is simply a click away!
This interaction, as original as it is unique, allows you to meet your fury buddy, with the feeling of the animal's presence physically by your side. Your thoughts and intentions travel to the therapy dog. It is most definitely much more than a simple video call. It is a real, fun, caring and emotion provoking moment, which will remain yours and your fur buddy’s forever.

You can communicate immediately with your long-haired friend, talk to him/her, tell him/her stories, send him/her drawings and make him/her play. We can also allow him/her do some activities of your choice, according to his/her talents and abilities. In this privileged encounter, the heart connection is the most important of all.
To keep on enjoying this experience, it is possible to document these sessions (photos & videos) so that you can relive these precious moments and witness your own progress.

No matter where you live, a different, city, country or even continent, the therapy dogs offers you universal communication. It is precisely this heartfelt communication that we aim to develop and activate over time. We all have the capacity to empathize, to open up and to connect with the hearts of others in an honest and caring manner.

In addition to the many benefits this animal mediation will provide you, you will also be able to embrace spiritual values and share them with those around you. We are talking about an unlimited education and growth. The therapy dog does not make any judgment and therefore, a relationship filled with great freedom blossoms naturally.



€50 / video session

After more than 20 years of unconditional love with animals, I have decided to share this joy with you. My initial awakening alongside cats, my strong friendships with dogs and my discovery of horses. These are the most sublime beings, who have shaped the person I have become. They have imbedded into my being a very special and unique philosophy of life.

These are the specific values and personal balance that I, in turn, wish to offer you. Animals teach us about what we lack and ultimately heal us, in order to help us move forward on our journey. The approach I am offering here is adjusted to my personal values and your expectations. I am always driven by the desire to “together assemble your puzzle of life”, it means to connect you to the various elements of your life, in order to live and transmit your uniqueness.

When we align ourselves with our deepest nature, we discover ourselves anew and feel positive in being our authentic self. It is with this energy that we can be, give and receive with abundance throughout life.

Gabrielle, originally called White Plush, is a therapy dog. She is a magnificent Bernese mountain dog who fills us with joy and positive energy during every intervention. She knows how to reach out to you in order to help and guide you. She is the ideal dog, the one we all dream of: a large affectionate plush that we love to touch and interact with. Physical and sensory contact is one of her abilities to communicate. Can you see her? She is close by, a few kilometres from your home or within the reach of a click! She can interact during individual face-to-face sessions, remotely, in small groups or for demonstrations.

Who are our friends,
the Therapy Dogs?

Zorro

Oslo

Zorro is an extremely gentle therapy dog. He can be quite clingy! Zorro comes to your rescue, whatever the circumstances may be (hence his name!). He is often made available for individual sessions and sessions for children (hospitals and schools). Zorro being a sublime little long-haired dachshund, needs to be reassured on a daily basis in order to really gain self-confidence. He loves to coach, as much as he loves to be coached, by sensitive and tender souls, like himself. He is the ideal dog for those who prefer small dogs, who can be physically and emotionally held close to their heart.

Oslo is a very humanistic therapy dog. He has that special ability to melt your heart. All he wishes to do, is to make an impact in the world and your life. As a puppy, he was always looking for contact and interaction with various types of people. He is available for individual sessions, group sessions and for our dog knowledge program. He is a sublime red long-haired dachshund, as beautiful as he is lively. He expresses communication through his eyes which naturally goes straight to our hearts. He is a real charmer and much appreciated by the ladies!


Malachi

Finally, Malachi is a ball of love and a therapy dog. The little black dots on his snout are energy transmitters. Beyond his puppy eyes, his pupils are a reflection of your soul and its magnificence. Malachi is a beautiful Bernese mountain dog, who loves everyone and never fails to help those in need. His mission on earth is as large and magnificent as his beauty is. At first glance, his majestic side may be impressive, but don't be fooled, he’s got his heart on his sleeve. He is there to awaken your sociability and restore your self-confidence. Available for individual, as well as group sessions. He unfortunately does not interact with small children due to his powerful and large physical form. He works with teenagers, adults and seniors.



Our mediator dogs have all been trained and integrated socially from an early age. They have shown exceptional abilities to accompany people. They have been able to bring a smile on many faces and open the hearts of all those they have met.
