Mainely Kidz PT was founded in 2004 by Jen Corbeil. Shortly after starting Mainely Kidz, Jen quickly realized the need for clinics where children could receive all their therapeutic services in one location easing the burden on the parents along with reducing the stress of the children. With this concept in mind she has grown Mainely Kidz PT from a one room physical therapy clinic to a therapeutic center offering physical, occupational and speech therapy. Over the years Jen remained committed to providing quality therapeutic services for infants and children of all ages. Here at Mainely Kidz the focus is on helping children reach their full potential while striving to provide families the support and attention they deserve.

Facility Dogs 

 Duke and his owner, Miss Jen are a certified therapy dog team.  Duke is a yellow labrador retriever and lives with Miss Jen. Duke has been at Mainely Kidz since the first day he became part of Miss Jens family as a 3 month old puppy.  Duke loves to greet everyone at the clinic and can often be found in Miss Jens office behind the gate resting on his bed for everyones safety in case we have concerns with allergies.  Duke loves when kids stop by to see him and really loves when he can roam around the clinic greeting those that want to be and can be greeted. Duke likes eating snacks, playing outside, walking on the beach or the East Coast Greenway trail and visiting with all the Mainely Kidz friends.  Duke is also used in Miss Laceys animal assisted classes.

 

Jaffrey is a facility therapy dog that lives and works with Miss Lacey.  Jaffrey spent the first 2 and a half years of his life in an intensive training program through Assisted Canine Training Services, also known as ACTS where he learned all the tricks of becoming a service dog. However, Jaffreys socialite personality was a clear indicator that he would prefer to spread his love to anyone and everyone who would give him a chance. In December of 2015 he completed his training and was placed with Miss Lacey in his forever home, allowing him to pursue his career as a facility therapy dog where he would have endless opportunities to brighten the days of others. Jaffrey loves attention, belly rubs, swimming and learning new tricks. In his free time around the office he enjoys greeting people and playing with Duke. When he is home he enjoys playing with his two four legged siblings and playing outside. If you see Jaffrey around the clinic, be sure to ask Miss Lacey if you can pat him, you will surely make his day.
