St. John Ambulance
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.
