Therapy Dog Program
The St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog Program provides an opportunity for individuals to receive unconditional love and enjoy the comfort and companionship of a certified therapy dog.
The Program offers many benefits but ultimately works to improve the quality of lives of the people that receive visits. These benefits can include improved self-confidence and esteem, positive social engagement, and health benefits such as reduced blood pressure and also pain or stress relief.
The St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog Program is continuing to expand as communities recognize the special contributions that these caring, four-legged volunteers can bring to Canadians of all ages in all life circumstances.
