WHAT IS A THERAPY DOG?
A therapy dog is a pet dog that volunteers with their owner to provide affection and comfort to people in hospitals, retirement homes, nursing homes, schools, hospices, disaster areas, etc. Therapy dogs do not have public access like service dogs do. However, there are some service dogs, such as ours, who are also therapy dogs.
Therapy dogs provide a wide array of support, such as having children read to them, accompanying a child to a court session, visiting elders in nursing homes and much more.
Ricochet is a Therapy Dog Distinguised (THDD) with the AKC. She needed a minimum of 400 visits to gain this title, and it's the highest one that a dog can achieve.
