Therapy dogs and other therapy animals bring comfort and joy in schools, workplaces, hospitals, or any facility they visit. For the young and old, those who are sick and those who are well, and even those recovering from a crisis event, therapy animals have been proven to help. Pet therapy for seniors especially, can significantly enhance emotional well-being, and positively contribute to their social and cognitive health. Other areas with proven benefits are therapy dogs for the workplace. This can greatly boost morale, decrease stress levels, and enhance overall employee satisfaction and productivity.
