Facility Dogs work with professionals in a visitation, education, treatment or therapeutic setting. These dogs prove on a daily basis that “service” can take many paths to success. Dogs may help teens feel more comfortable opening up to a therapist or provide emotional comfort to a patient confined to a hospital bed. Health professionals often note that the dogs seem to sense when a snuggle or a romp is called for, and can provide the nudge of motivation that helps an individual in critical moments.
