Angel on a Leash

America's Therapy Dogs TM


 OUR CHAMPIONS AT WORK

Pet therapy is an extremely rewarding experience for all humans involved. Our dogs provide unconditional love and a calming experience during visits, but they receive the benefit of mental and physical stimulation.    It's a win-win for all.

See us at work

At our member meeting of Oct 28, 2023,  Dr. Susan Sciarrata spoke generally about trauma and PTSD and  addressed phrases that you CAN USE when you and your dog encounter someone suffering from a traumatic event on one of your visits.  Also she specifically addressed phrases that you SHOULD NOT use in that situation.

A recap of her presentation, including phrases to use and phrases to avoid can be found here -
