Therapy dogs for the home


homer
I was wondering if there was a service that brought dogs into people's homes to hang out for an hour or so. I know there are therapy dogs for hospitals and rehab clinics but is there an in-home service?

I think that "an hour or so" defines a therapy dog. A service dog performs specific tasks that require extensive training with his master. A therapy dog's job is to make people feel good. He can become a permanent family member, or he can visit for an hour and go on his merry way.

That’s the only thing Chicago’s good for: to tell people where Wisconsin is.

Yeah therapy dog....just hangs out for an hour once a week and then leaves. TDI gave me a form to fill out that requires doctor's signature. Thanks for the tip!

Homer, I'm sorry to know that you have a friend or family member in a position to benefit from such services, but happy to know that you're working towards making it happen. It really does work wonders for many people. Best of luck to all involved.
