When talking about “Dog therapy”, this refers to dog team members.
Residents on the dog team have the opportunity to care for something other than themselves.

The dog team members are trained (giving them a sense of accomplishment, to be able to handle these dogs) and are taught to be responsible for animals that are totally dependant on them for their care.

We have also found that residents with withdrawal, insecurity and fear to trust people, can relate better to an animal that accepts them unconditionally.

This is beneficial to the emotional healing process and gives them the confidence to start reaching out to people as well.
