Therapy Dogs

Therapy dogs

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

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
retirement homes
nursing homes
disaster areas 
and to
people with learning difficulties

Schwarz dogs are NOT working dogs
