A therapy dog provides affection and comfort to people in facilities such as hospitals, nursing homes, assisted-living, hospice, shelters, schools, libraries, and physical therapy centers. Through the unique animal-to-human bond, visitation from a therapy dog can brighten a person’s day, lift spirits, reduce anxiety or stress and help motivate people through treatments. A therapy dog visiting a facility is always accompanied by their handler. Therefore, our therapy dog class is as much for the handler to learn proper handling etiquette as it is for the dog to learn manners.
