I was recently interviewed by Excel Behavioral Health, which provides Psychiatric Services and Treatment Options in Boca Raton, Florida.
The topic of my interview with Excel Behavioral Health was about how Therapy Dogs can address the needs of those with anxiety and depression or addiction.
My experiences in training Certified Service Dogs have taught me that professional trained therapy dogs can be useful and important for the benefit of those in need of healing and comfort at hospitals, senior care facilities and rehabilitation centers.
I'm of the opinion that any dog can be a therapy dog, big or small dogs and mixed breeds too. Therapy dogs can be a wonderful additional therapy for mental illness treatment e.g. PTSD, making it possible for full healing.
