Why Canine Facilitated Therapy?

I have chosen to add my pet/s to my business for many reasons not only for me to have them by my side but to help introduce a different form of releasing stress to CurDane.

A lot of dog owners know, when they have had that stressful day, coming home to a wagging tail and a persona thats pure love wipes that day of stress away and drops your energy elsewhere…

The study that has gone into animal therapy to date shows amazing results on both emotional and physical pain, working with depression, autism, psychological break downs or stress relieve as well as disabilities, paralysis and physical ailments. It has been proven that pets can lower blood pressure and give a longer life span. 

My hope is that the canine's will work from a stress relieving angle in the clinic with the aim of progressing to physical ailments in time, but as it is completely new to me I will be introducing slowly. As every dog owner knows, training is never finished :)

It is not just canines that can help in assisted therapy but horses, dolphins, cats and even chickens. All living beings can help one another if we allow it.
