WHAT IS WE DELIVER
HEALTHY CO. ?
Canine-assisted therapy has become a fast
growing healthcare service for patients in the
United States. In fact, it is used to help soothe
patients in hospitals, raise spirits in nursing
homes, and to support veterans with post-
traumatic stress disorder. The alternative therapy
can also benefit children with special needs or
improve the mood of family caregivers.
Dog therapy can promote both physical and
emotional wellbeing for many different people in
need. Let’s take a look at how dog therapy can
help improve emotional health.
HOW DOG
THERAPY HELPS
The purpose of dog-assisted
therapy is to promote the emotional,
mental, and physical well-being of
patients as part of a comprehensive
treatment plan. 
Research supports the idea that dog
therapy has tangible benefits and is
more than just a cute approach to
fighting mental traumas.
THE NATIONAL
INSTITUTE OF
HEALTH
CONCLUDED...
...that interactions with animals like dogs
can help improve social attention, social
behavior, interpersonal interactions, and
mood. Some evidence in the study also
showed reduced rates of aggression and
enhanced empathy along with improve
learning skills.
Rebecca Johnson, head researcher at
the Research Center for Human/Animal
Interaction at the University of
Missouri College of Veterinary
Medicine, stated that “Oxytocin has
some powerful effects for us in the
body’s ability to be in a state of
readiness to heal, and also to grow new
cells, so it predisposes us to an
environment in our own bodies where
we can be healthier.”
"HUMAN AND ANIMAL
BONDING CAN BE GOOD
FOR HUMANS' LONG-TERM
HEALTH"
- REBECCA JOHNSON

reason dogs are called man’s best friend. You can lean on them when you
most need their support.
