Viral skateboarding dog helps children with disabilities in Nutley
Fynn the Lab has gone viral with his skateboarding and surfing videos. However, his day job is being a therapy dog for The Phoenix Center in Nutley.
Fynn joins his mom twice a week at the private school working with students who have autism and other disabilities. He's also helped multiple students get over their fear and dislike of animals.
Dogs can have a positive impact on children with autism, reducing anxiety, improving communication and being a much-needed companion.
