PHOTOS: Therapy Dogs visit Cherry Lane Elementary 🐾
The students at Cherry Lane Elementary had some four-legged guests to their classroom on Wednesday.
Kids were able to play and interact with the dogs. And even gave one a brush! 🐕
Therapy dogs have a completely different job than service dogs. Their responsibilities are to provide psychological or physiological therapy to individuals other than their handlers. These dogs have stable temperaments and friendly, easy-going personalities. Unlike service dogs, therapy dogs are encouraged to interact with a variety of people while they are on-duty including petting the therapy dog.
