New Therapy Dog Teams

by Julie Flood

    Ten new therapy dog teams recently graduated from and are working for the St. John Ambulance Comox Valley Therapy Dog branch on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.

Owners of the therapy dogs volunteer their pets to participate in weekly visitations that last for a minimum of 15 to 20 minutes per client.
