Therapy dogs

Many people confuse Therapy Animals with Service Dogs.
A therapy animal is most commonly a dog (but can be other species) that

1.  
has been obedience trained and

2.  screened for its ability to interact favorably with humans and other animals.

 

The primary purpose of a therapy animal is to provide affection and comfort to people in
hospitals,
retirement homes
nursing homes
schools
hospices
disaster areas 
and to
people with learning difficulties


Schwarz dogs are NOT working dogs
