We already know that our pets make us happy, but who knew they could make you healthier? The use of pets in a medical setting dates back more than 150 years! Simply interacting with animals can increase a person’s oxytocin levels, which make them feel happy and trusting.
To create that happy and trusting bond, we need to know that we are safe. With our own pets, we have established a relationship, but with other pets, you might not know what to expect. That’s why animals that work with people go through various training sessions. It teaches them the best way to act and respond when in certain situations.
That’s why it’s important that, just like Rita, Boo keeps up-to-date with all of his training. Back in April he completed his therapy dog training!
