What do our exceptionally trained therapy dogs do?
Utilizing our specially trained dogs, we make individual and group therapy visits to people in hospitals, nursing care facilities, schools, libraries, hospice, and other community organizations.
During therapy visits our dogs may help with a patient’s rehabilitation by being brushed or fetching a ball. Our dogs may endure being dressed up in costumes or having their teeth brushed to help children learn life skills. Our dogs may perform tricks to bring a smile to a face, or lay patiently on a quilt listening to a child read a story. These same dogs may nudge a patient’s arm to show affection or wait patiently as an elderly person slowly pads down a hallway holding their leash.
