Therapy Animal Information and Law

Therapy dogs are dogs that are able to help during hard times and give moral support to those who need that. They do not have the same rights as service dogs or emotional support animals. However, they should be trained in order to be allowed to work with people.
They usually take part in animal-assisted therapy and help people relax by decreasing loneliness, creating distractions from unpleasant feelings and negative thoughts, and providing comfort. Speaking about physical conditions, therapy dogs are able to lower acute pain, normalize blood pressure, motivate people and make it easier for them to socialize.
Their services are mainly used at hospitals, nursing houses, schools, rehabilitation facilities, etc. The animals should be trained to work with more than one person through various situations.
