Therapy dogs have been used in high school, college and hospital settings, and as first responders to disasters, such as the shooting at Sandy Hook. Therapy dogs:
- offer the physical benefits of reducing blood pressure, providing physical comfort and pain management
- promote self-esteem and stimulate memory and problem-solving skills
- can provoke laughter, lift one’s mood and provide companionship
