Therapy Dogs

therapy dogsDogs help people by working at many different jobs. In 1976, Elain Smith started a program for training dogs to visit institutions.

Therapy dogs are not usually service dogs. Therapy dogs are trained to provide affection, comfort and love to people in hospitals, retirement homes, nursing homes, schools, hospices and disaster areas.

Therapy dogs bring joy when people are sad.
