COURSE FOR THERAPEUTIC DOG

Our labrador Kara has certificates for a number of courses for dogs and can show many tricks. She likes to perform in front of the children. She became a part of the organization that wishes to cheer up the every day life of children, of the elderly and all others that like animals. Therapy with animals influences the physical, psychic and social development of children: it contributes to deeper breathing, muscle relaxation, better immune system, relaxing the tension, feeling of being accepted, safe, quiet; it increases communication and understanding of limits (Aubrey, 2000).
