Dog Therapy

24 January 2017

We have introduced Dog Therapy in our Care Centre and Razzle enjoyed all the attention he got from the residents this morning.

It is well-known that interaction with a gentle, friendly pet has significant benefits.

Petting a dog has a calming effect and produces an automatic relaxation response. The residents are inclined to communicate more and a visit from Razzle definitely lifts their spirits.

We will be seeing a lot more of Razzle and other therapy dogs on a regular basis in future.
