Dog Training Therapy

The extensive literature on dog-training therapy emphasizes the physical and mental benefits associated with using larger animals. Dog therapy has been proven to effect positive results in children suffering from a wide range of problems- physical, mental and emotional. The need to communicate with the animals through non-verbal means helps develop emotional openness, ability for self-expression and the acquiring of social skills, all of which are most conducive to behavioral change. Our youngsters are suitable candidates for dog therapy– they manifest excessive aggressive behavior, violent outbursts, cursing and destructiveness. Their inability to communicate their problems and their pain verbally is facilitated by the link they create with the animals.
