About once a month Billy, the therapy dog, visits our children during their Confident Kids programming. They love it!
His trainer not only shows our kids how she trains him, but Billy also performs tricks.
The kids love to pet Billy and are able to give him treats when he does his tricks!
Therapy animals offer affection and comfort to people in hospitals, nursing homes, assisted-living, hospice, shelters, schools, libraries, and physical therapy centers.
Therapy animals are not the same as service dogs or emotional support animals.
