What is a Therapy Dog?
A Therapy Dog is a dog which has been trained with their handler (usually their owner), to provide therapeutic intervention to another person in the community (e.g. allied health client, school student, nursing home resident).
Please note, we do not train assistance dogs or companion dogs.
