Just a question how about a Boston Terrier.
What about Shelties?
Gsd`s are awesome.
Once this farce ended and the Golden was not on this list, it immediately nullified any credibility this channel had
King Charles Caviliar?
For a channel called PetGuide – I don’t think you guys know the idiosyncrasies of different breeds, or what therapy dogs vs. service dogs (vs. emotional support dogs) actually are. First, you showed Greyhounds at #3, which I agree with, only you showed ZERO Greyhounds – you showed Whippets and an Italian Greyhound. All VERY distinct breeds, all VERY distinct characteristics. I own an Italian Greyhound, and she is NOTHING like standard Greyhounds or Whippets in temperament (and that’s neither good nor bad, just different). You did the same with the category of "poodle" – Standards have VERY different personalities and temperaments than Toys, and that makes a huge difference for a therapy dog – it’s not "they’re all the same, just different sizes." Secondly, you have to be kidding with no Golden Retriever. Honestly. Look up ANY children’s hospital therapy dog videos here on YouTube….more likely than not, there’ll be a Golden in it. Who compiled this list, good grief……………..
Omg I have a corgi and a cat and they are the best emotional supporters but my corgi is a Pembroke welsh corgi and my cat is a Siamese mix
This list isn’t complete without a Dachshund dog.
I think any dog breed could be a therapy dog
Why no Golden retrievers?
I don’t think you know what a therapy dog is!
When I think of German Shepherds I always think of my first dog. Had her since I was born. She was a therapy dog so when I developed Depression at a young age she was great.
Best dog I have ever owned was a rottie. Thank you for including them in your list.
GOLDEN RETRIEVERS NEED TO BE IN THIS LIST.
I think the service dog should be the right dog for the owner. My blue heeler/border collie is perfect for my anxiety and keeping me grounded.
Guys calm down, they cant get every dog breed in the list.
Forgot about samoyed
Border collie are the best kind of collie
NO. NOPE. german shepards hard to control,loud unpredicble,and biters. labs have major health issues,and can bit nippy.goldies are AWESOME…pugs are best,quiet,generally harmless,and slow..and like people..
Unfortunately the United kingdom doesn’t believe in therapy dog for depression, PTSD or any other mental health problems. Making all of us, looking like fools for asking.
British Raj strikes back.
Labradoodles (because they’re another great hypoallergenic breed) and golden retrievers should definitely be on this list
Why labs? I hate labs
I need a therapy dog it will make me more happy because I like something to hug when I cry and feel hopeless and I like to touch something soft it helps me so much
Rottweilers are the best!!!
Golden retrievers are by far the best qualified as number 1
This video made me so happy seeing all these sweet dogs being all cute
This sounds like a list for Emotional Support Dogs more than Therapy Dogs… How can they spell shepHERD wrong? And not list Goldens ? "poodles pick up on their owners anxieties" That’s an emotional support dog, not a therapy dog…. Very disappointed in this video…
I’m surprised that the Old English Sheepdog, and the Saint Bernard wasn’t on the list.
Great I have a beagador beagle/Labrador mix
Any dog can be good if raised properly. The golden retriever was an obvious omission from this list.
What about Golden retrievers are they good therapy dogs.
She only said "butt" once in this video!
U said cardigan welsh corgi what about Pembroke welsh corgis?
This narrator is so patronising.
you didn’t show any greyhounds when you were talking about them? you showed a few whippets and an italian greyhound, which are all sighthounds but significantly different from greyhounds
No boxer golden or collie
Pitbulls should be on this list. Nothing could make you feel safer then having one of those next to you with Anxiety. I had one as an ESA before Australia had a complete ban of pittys. Now i have a Bull Arab (Australian Hunting Breed) as my ESA.
German Shepherd because they are nice really nice
I work in therapy, and I can say that any dog can be a therapy dog. That being said, the two biggest omissions were the Golden Retriever and the Pitbull. Both are super friendly to people and I have seen more of them than any other dog breed in therapy organizations. Also, Whippets were shown in the greyhound section, there was not a single greyhound there. I also want to add that Beagles, Collies, German Shepherds and Labs will only be good therapy dogs if their owners are experienced dog handlers that understand how to socialize well and early in the dog’s development. Otherwise all four of these breeds become difficult to manage and in the case of German Shepherds, withdrawn from people outside their immediate family members.
Bassett Hound? I think they would be similar to a Beagle in terms of temperament. My Bassett loves people is calm.
y’all put the same dogs in all these lists. Does your bot not have access to more footage of other breeds?
1:19 the Cermats Cer-Mam only Jenna Marbles will understand
Where is Newfoundland’s? I’m a show dog handler and have worked with newfies before they make perfect therapy dogs!!
This list seems to strongly misunderstand ESA and therapy dog..
Awe some my dog is a Pomeranian cross with a pug
Almost all good therapy dogs come from lines of guard dog, hunting companion dog, or toy dog because of their especially emphasized traits and characteristics of companionship for centuries, indoor dogs are relatively new.
