Goldendoodles make great therapy and service dogs!

 

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a therapy dog and a service dog?

Well let us help you out, a therapy dog is dog that is trained to provide comfort and affection to people in retirement homes, nursing homes, hospitals, schools,

disaster areas, hospices, and to people with learning difficulties such as autism. Therapy dogs are usually not assistance or service dogs, but can be if given proper training.

Service dogs are trained specifically to perform certain task to help someone who has a disability. Service dogs stay with their person and have special access privileges in to public

places such as stores, restaurants, planes, etc.  A good example of a service dog is a dog that would help to guide an owner that is blind, or a dog that helps assist someone with a

physical disability.
