The benefits of puppy therapy
While pet therapy may not seem like a service that offers an assortment of health benefits, it does in fact have a multitude of positives that it serves primarily within the mental health sector. Interaction with puppies is a therapeutic experience and can lower cortisol and blood pressure to leave you feeling more relaxed and de-stressed. Puppies can also sense emotion and can therefore relate to the person petting them to instil the positive benefits for both the pet and the client.
Pet therapy can also be used as an educational tool for young children. Through puppy therapy children get the opportunity to interact with young animals that are completely friendly, this develops their motor skills as well as getting them acclimated toward animals they may encounter during their regular day. Pet therapy being used in tandem with reading can also help the children focus and creates a no-pressure, non-judgement environment that may lead to strides in their literary development.
Mental health benefits are also abundant for those enjoying our puppy pet therapy with animal interaction having been proven to;
- Lift spirits of those going through tough times,
- Decrease feelings of anxiety,
- Lessen the severity of depression,
- Prevent loneliness,
- Instil a sense of community,
- Combat feelings of alienation,
- Encourage communication with those around them.
Please note that pet therapy should not be confused with assistance or mental support animals that are trained to adhere to the specific needs of their owners.
