Therapy Dogs International.

The power of pets to help with healing has been become increasingly evident. Animals are increasingly being used to provide contact and companionship for patients in hospitals or nursing home who would otherwise be isolated. Visits by therapy dogs can be uplifting to the patients. Numerous studies that trace the healing benefits of animals demonstrate that. The companionship of a dog is also a stress reliever in difficult situations and may be used to provide solace to people after traumatic events.

Therapy Dogs International is one organization that is dedicated to helping people through the use of pets. Therapy Dogs International screens and trains dogs specifically to help people in these situations. Not all dogs are suited to become therapy dogs. A handler and dog go through extensive training and certification. Therapy Dogs International helps maintain a high standard for these dogs.
