Therapy Dogs

Heeling Allies specializes in training Mental Health Service Dogs, Emotional Support Dogs & Skilled Companion Dogs.  The term Therapy Dog, is often confused with other types of dogs that assist; or provide comfort and companionship to individuals with mental health conditions such as, depression or anxiety.

A Therapy Dog is a dog trained to provide affection and comfort to people in hospitals, retirement homes, nursing homes, schools, people with learning difficulties, and in stressful situations, such as disaster areas.
