Emotional Therapy Pets

IMG_7021In the United States, service dogs and their handlers do enjoy special protection under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990[1], which gives them equal access to anywhere the general public is allowed, such as restaurants, grocery stores, movie theaters, taxis, and aircraft, etc.

An emotional therapy dog is a trained dog that has natural and trained attributes within their personality that give them the ability to provide a therapeutic and healing presence for their owner.

Emotional therapy pets give emotional support and comfort to their partners fostering social acceptance and self-esteem, possibly for the first time in their lives.

Learning to live with an invisible disability is a traumatic and often overwhelming process.  It is very difficult for children to be labeled different and very complicated when some disabilities can not be seen.

We would like to try our best to provide information and educational services to groups and organizations to expand their knowledge and understanding of emotional therapy dogs and how they meet the needs of children living with invisible disabilities in our communities..
