Rhythm is a Therapy Dog registered with Therapy Dogs International. Therapy dogs provide animal assisted therapy to people in various facilities – such as hospitals and nursing homes. Therapy Dogs are not Service Dogs who are trained to assist their handlers in some way. Therapy Dogs do not have the same access rights as service dogs. They must have specific permission from the facilities that they visit. Rhythm visits schools and the local library where she provides reading support. She also visits a rehab hospital and a juvenile detention center.
I am so happy to find your site. I used to visit facilities with my old golden with our local Rx Pets. How wonderful for Rhythm and for all of those blessed with her visits.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you find some fun things here.
I love your site, the great/cute photos, but mostly that you and rhythm are helping others. That’s the best. And, thank you also for stopping by my site. It’s wonderful to connect up with you.
Thanks for the kind words! Helping others is the best!! And I’m glad that I can do it in my own small way.
Rhythm sounds like a lovely dog! My sons have participated in storytime with library dogs here in Georgia, and they loved it. Keep it up, it makes a difference! And thanks so much for following my little ‘ol blog. 🙂
Thanks for the visit and the follow! I just discovered your sight and enjoyed what I found there. Every library should have library dogs! I’m glad to hear that yours does!
You’re welcome, and thank YOU for the kind words! Look forward to following Rhythm.
