What happens when a child interacts with a therapy dog?

boy_dog_outside1Research has shown that magical things happen when a child interacts with an Emotional Pet Therapy Team. Anxiety levels decrease, heartbeat slows, breathing becomes deeper and more relaxed, and fears are forgotten. When a child feels calm and secure, not only is learning possible but physical and emotional healing are achieved.
