Dog Training for Pet Therapy
Secret Dogs Business can train your canine friend to become the perfect partner to soothe the suffering of patients. The purpose of this training is to teach dogs how to give love, support and companionship to those who need it.
Be it for physical or mental health, dog therapy has proven to be beneficial for a wide variety of people, especially autistic children and the elderly.
The simple act of patting and playing with the dog can have a calming effect. And, more importantly, a loyal companion can help decrease feelings of isolation and alienation.
