Another story about dogs and PT

I can’t wait to make my dog, Bear, a therapy dog. Though he won’t be as skilled as the service/therapy dog discussed in this article, but we can build up to that 🙂

Here’s a link to the photos for a day in the life of a therapy dog:

Here’s a link to the article that tells you the dog’s story.

I currently have a patient who is on the wait list to receive a service dog from the company mentioned in the article.

Any other PTs or therapists have therapy/service dogs at their clinics?
