Exciting news: both our office dogs are now registered Therapy Dogs. Billie has joined Ben in being accepted as part of the Therapy Dogs Nationwide scheme.
They have also been to Southampton Airport supporting passengers and staff.
Therapy Dogs Nationwide is a national Charity where visiting volunteers take their own dogs into establishments to give comfort, distraction, and stimulation.
Dogs have been used in the care sector for over 40 years. The benefits of Animal Assisted Therapies (AAT) have been extensively studied and the results range from improvement in general health and wellbeing to increased confidence levels, improved and controlled movement to improved communication skills.
