FIND A THERAPY DOG ORGANIZATION

Dog Walker at the Park

Therapy dogs volunteer with their owners in settings such as schools, hospitals, and nursing homes. 

From working with a child who is learning to read to assisting a patient rehabilitating after surgery, therapy dogs and their owners work together as a team to improve the lives of other people.

Therapy dogs are not service dogs.
