Texas Children’s Therapy Dog Program
Texas Children’s Therapy Dog Program
Meet Elsa, Texas Children’s new therapy dog. Elsa is part of the hospital’s newly launched facility dog program that uses animal-assisted therapy to enhance the emotional well-being of patients who are having trouble coping with hospital stays, a new diagnosis or other traumatic experiences.
I have a service dog and it helps me a lot everyday
I don’t know how but my service dog ‘Elija’ always manages a way to make me smile, I don’t know how but that’s one of the reasons why I love him
The most humane and safest option for walking a dog who tends to want to pull is a front-leash attachment harness, such as the Sense-ation. When dogs lunge or pull while wearing the Sense-ation harness, the front leash attachment redirects them back toward the dogwalker. With patience and positive reinforcement, walks can be a pleasant experience for both human and dog.
What can any person say other than This World Is Filled With Wonderful People and Their Mates.
Dogs are awesome. Or animals
Humans… Can’t even stare at each other…?
so do you always just walk into a patient’s room with a large dog unannounced?
Dogs will NEVER fail to cheer you up. Even if you’re having the worst day, if you don’t smile and have your heart melt when you see one you have no soul.
i used to see her during every chemo treatment, and i miss her so so much.
the woman’s name is Sarah and her dog Elsa works alongside others, Pinto and Bailey!
Assistance or therapy dog? Both were mentioned…but different. She is an employee? Hope the dog is covered by liability insurance just in case anything happens.
How to start emotional therapy dog group?
Oscar (Dachshund) is my own Registered Therapy Dog. He has saved my life. I Love him so much.
Hopefully tmrw I can see one of them. The hospital stinks but this is the good part of it.
My older song needed to have back surgery when he was only 5 and before they would release him they had to observe him walking and he just absolutely refused until they brought in a therapy dog and he thought it was just the greatest thing ever to walk the dog up and down the hall and they were able to confirm he was walking well enough and let him go home.
look our classes
dog is a professional cuddler
Saving even more lives than human <3
I was seriously thinking about getting my dog certified to become a therapy dog. Charlie loves people, kids and adults, and his adorable looks and calm and submissive demeanor would make him a good therapy dog. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to take the leap with Charlie to get him to be a certified therapy dog, but seeing these kids and how Elsa the therapy dog cheered them up, I have decided that I’m going to get him evaluated, and hopefully certified so he can spread his puppy love to those who need it most. Thank god for Elsa, and all of the awesome therapy dogs out there <3
STOP CUTTING THE ONIONS

No dogs are gentle… all dogs are aggressive

Allergies cause anxiety, you get dog for anxiety, then dog cause anxiety, then unwittingly you kling to k9 even more, for comfort. Sad world we live in

This is just so good.
Beautiful dog. One of the ladies spoke using this professional-speak, which was really unnecessary for this situation. Enhanced competencies and all that rubbish…she’s talking about a dog for goodness sake.
The dog looks tired
