Pippa the Therapy dog visits Romans Class

Pippa the Therapy dog was in today and visited Romans class.

Kai in particular was very happy to see her and they had a very good interactive session, as you can see.

Therapy dog is rather a general term and is often used to describe an dog that is used to benefit people in a therapeutic way.  This incorporates quite a wide range of potential activities with a wide range of potential people and clients.  Some pets take part in visiting programmes, whilst others take part in structured activities as part of a therapeutic programme or practice.  Therapy dogs in the UK are not considered to be assistance dogs – this is because an assistance dog is trained to perform specific tasks to help a disabled person and are usually qualified by one of the charitable organisations registered as members of Assistance Dogs UK.*
