We are offer a range of pet therapy services in North London, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire. By combining occupational therapy with pet therapy, we are able to meet your recovery and rehabilitation goals.
There are a number of benefits of using pet therapy:
•Facilitates communication and social interactions

•To help learn appropriate forms of touch
•To help to improve self-esteem and self worth
•To learn new skills

By using occupational therapy principles, our trained therapy pets can assist with supporting people to engage in meaningful daily activities. Such as; grooming therapy pets to enhance motor skills following a stroke, motivating mental health clients to engage in walking activities.
I am a Chocolate Labrador and I love meeting people. I enjoy playing with my soft toys, especially when I win tug of war. I am currently training to be a pet therapy dog working alongside Hayley. My favourite activities are walking in large fields, cuddles and sleeping on the sofa after a busy day at work.
