A therapy dog is a dog trained to provide affection and comfort to people in hospitals, retirement homes, nursing homes, schools, people with learning difficulties and stressful situations such as disaster areas . The handler and dog work as a team to spread happiness, comfort and a feeling of well-being.
Do you have a registered therapy dog? Would you like to know more about becoming a therapy dog team? Than this is for you. We also want to welcome any teams being evaluated on Saturday, as well as anyone at Goldstock who is interested in learning more about therapy dogs.
The last two years we have asked volunteers to share their experiences and also helpful tips. This year I would like to ask for volunteers to share why you wanted to have a therapy dog and do therapy visits. What drove you to this decision and why you enjoy it.
If you have a therapy dog we at Goldstock would like to recognize you and your dog for service to your community. Please click below to register for the ceremony which will be held on Saturday Sept. 5th 11:30 AM. to 12 noon.
