”Safe encounter with a dog”


Dog therapy

Dog therapy are motivational activities, with the  assistance of a specially selected, prepared and well- trained dog that helps with physical therapy, speech therapy, education, and psychotherapy. During the classes, the dog becomes a successful motivator which encourages you to do defined exercises and work on yourself. The presence of a dog helps not only to pay attention, encourage to play and jolly the long exercises but most importantly it helps with natural ‘survival’ through difficult, tedious exercises. The natural spontaneousness and happiness of a dog allow all participants to feel satisfaction from performing exercises and tasks, open up to others and work on their own emotions.

For whom?

Dog therapy is especially recommended to children with various types of disfunctions, disorders, impairments and disabilities. It has a benign influence on children suffering from depression or anxiety. Dog therapy can also help kids who cannot find their place in a peer group, those ones who show aggression (but not towards animals) or isolated children.

Dog therapy is an excellent enrichment of educational lessons for healthy children. By attending classes with a dog, kids learn more effectively and willingly.

Dog therapy is also recommended as a form of therapy for adults. When it comes to elderly people suffering from Alzheimer, the contact with a dog allows a person to strengthen the sense of security and mental stabilisation
