What Does a Therapy Dog Do?
Therapy dogs are often confused with service dogs. Service dogs are specially trained from the time they are puppies to help humans with a wide variety of challenges such as visual impairment, diabetes, PTSD, seizures, etc. Service dogs live with the person that needs the help and usually accompany that person everywhere. Therapy dogs may or may not be trained, and bring comfort and joy to people in many situations. In this blog, you will learn about the benefits of therapy dogs and how your pet can become one.
To get firsthand knowledge of how the process works, we invited guest blogger Sarah Murphy and her newly minted therapy dog, Minka, to share what they learned.
