Our Therapy Pup


Hello! My name is Otter!  I am a hypoallergenic Goldendoodle from my mom's home state of Alabama (Roll Tide!).  I was born September 1, 2019, and it was love at first sight for my mom when she saw my puppy pics!  My mom Dr. Julie knew long before she opened the doors of LKNPD that she wanted a sweet pup to help her take care of her patients.  I'm still a therapy dog in training, but most days I'm at work, meeting families and learning how to be an extra good boy!  One day I'll learn how to hang out alongside anxious kiddos to make their dental visits even easier.  In my spare time I love to chase balls, chew bones, snuggle, receive belly rubs, and wrestle with my big brother Dougie.  I'm learning new tricks every day and can't wait to show off for all of you when you come visit us at LKNPD!  It's all smiles, all day, and we always have a PAWsome time!

Feel free to reach out to any of our team members to learn more about Otter and how he can help your anxious child cope with dental anxiety during appointments.  We're always here to answer any questions or address any concerns!

Also, we understand that animals aren't for everyone.  While Otter is hypoallergenic and non-shedding, he "lives" in a private room at our office and is only available to your family upon your request.
