- Sunrise Springs Spa Resort’s Celebrates Puppies Every Day (New Mexico)
Santa Fe’s only destination spa, Sunrise Springs Spa Resort, celebrates puppies every day as proud partners of Assistance Dogs of the West (ADW), an organization that has served the community for over 20 years. Guests experience the joy of playing with puppies, while helping to train them to become future services dogs.
From their very first day on Earth, these amazing animals learn about their world through a supervised program that helps them become confident, coordinated, competent adults. In All About Assistance Dogs! Puppies 101, guests learn the basics of purpose-bred dogs, where they are from, what temperaments they embody and the history and reputation of ADW.
The Puppy Enrichment Program looks at what motivates each dog to connect with people and one another. Guests work with ADW professionals to reinforce basic cues and learn how body language, voice, emotion and movement affect the way the dogs learn and respond to their human partners.
Science now acknowledges what any dog owner has known forever: Looking at a dog at rest releases oxytocin, the hormone that bonds a mother and child; also lowers blood pressure; reduces cortisol levels (flight or fight); and decreases heart rates. In Heart Opener with Puppies, guests will pet, hold and cuddle dogs and get some feel-good hormones moving.
