Do You Need a Service Dog?

Service Dogs, Therapy Animals, and More

One of my neighbors asked me if I knew of any therapy or service dog agencies or trainers in our Roseville Sacramento area.

I didn’t. So, of course, I dug in and did some research. In case you ever have that question for yourself or someone you care about, here’s what I found out.

As you may already know, there is a wide variety of therapy/service dogs. Generally, therapy dogs go to hospitals and homes and visit sick patients including those with disabilities, those on hospice, etc. These are just short visits to encourage them. They even have therapy dogs at the Sacramento International Airport. (I had fun getting to meet one there. 😉 )

Therapy Animals

There are several of therapy animal groups in our area. Some of these may be for you to volunteer for taking your dog out. Others to request a visit.

Service Dogs

There are also, of course, service therapy dogs who live with the person who needs them. These range from guide dogs for the blind to epilepsy dogs to therapy dogs for PTSD to those trained to deal with other types of disabilities and more.

Horse Therapy

Horseback riding can have therapeutic benefits for many dealing with a variety of special needs whether disabled, dealing with emotional needs, etc. We’ve had two special people in our lives blessed by organizations such as these!
