Carly is a black labrador retriever who has been with NutritionRx / CrossFit London since 2009. Originally fostered by Jen & Dave to become trained as a service dog for a child with autism, Carly was released from Autism Dog Services because of her overly-friendly personality (as if that’s even a flaw), and was adopted permanently into the family.
Carly’s hobbies include chasing balls and sticks, snuggling with her favourite humans, and offering kisses and tail wags to new clients. She usually sleeps in the corner of the NutritionRx office on her bed during client nutrition counselling sessions. If you have an allergy or fear of dogs, please alert our team prior to your initial assessment and arrangements can be made to have Carly stay at home.
