Therapy Dog Program:
St. John Ambulance believes that anyone, anywhere can benefit physically and emotionally from experiencing the unconditional love of a dog. Many people spend time isolated from their families, during hospital stays, and in seniors' residences or group homes. It is acknowledged that contact with pets and stroking pets has a calming effect, lowering blood pressure and relieving tension.
Any dog of sound temperament can be evaluated to become a Therapy Dog. The program assesses each dog's temperament to ensure their suitability for the program.
