Maxxie is one of Kids and Co’s therapy dogs. He is a cross between a poodle and a cocker spaniel. Max turned five this year, which means that even though he is grown up and sensible he is still young enough to enjoy all the kids, young people and families who come to see us in Balmain and Double Bay.

Maxxie is a graduate of Puppy School and very well trained. His calm approach and loving nature allow him to sit with children who are feeling anxious or afraid. He always seems to know who needs a little special time with him, and settles himself down next to children, young people and Mums and Dads alike. Maxxie specializes in helping kids who have phobias about dogs, but he is available for anyone who needs him.

When he is not at work Maxxie enjoys running, playing and retrieving the ball (and sleeping). When you come to Kids and Co just ask about him and we can make sure you get an introduction!
