Carol and Alice In Wonderland

Moving into retirement from nursing, Carol Stevens with Alice in Wonderland (Alice) will be showing and working in the pet therapy worlds. Carol has always been interested in pet therapy during her nursing career, spanning 35 years, as she understands the therapeutic value of dogs working with patients. Long-time dog lover and pet owner, Carol has been noticing how Alice responds naturally to people and has given joy to friends and visitors cheering them up and leaving them feeling young at heart. After a hard day at work Carol’s friends call saying they’ll be over to see Alice for cheering up.

Carol will be breeding with Alice and moving into the pet therapy and dog assistance world over the next few years.

Carol’s enthusiasm to explore the pet therapy and dog assistance world with Alice and help our breeding program is wonderful. I’m very lucky to have Carol’s friendship and be able to share her and Alice’s adventures.
