Marley is our emotional support Labradoodle. He completed his therapy dog training through Off the Leash here in Clarksville. Thanks to the current Pandemic, Marley was not able to take his final exam and receive his certificate. His owner, Dr. Cornell, is hoping with a little more socialization and more empathy shown to our nervous patients Marley will soon be able to take his test and become an official Therapy Dog.  Marley enjoys playing an active roll in the office, assisting those who may need a little emotional support during their visit.  He can often be found roaming the office or taking a nap.  In his spare time he loves chasing a ball, chewing on bones, and taking long walks at home.  (Truth be told, he is more therapy for our employees than our patients….but we will keep that a secret!)
