As an all things animal advocate, I'm slightly embarrassed to admit this was my first introduction to the existence of canine therapy groups.
Described as offering unconditional love and being non-judgmental, dogs make the perfect pal to just have a cuddle with and generally make everyone smile - especially breaking the tension in the case of traumatic events.

'Pets As Therapy' is the UK's national charity. Any one can register and volunteer their time with their pet as long as the animal meets a certain small criteria and now that we know about it, once Baker is of age and has been neutered we will look into having him become a PAT dog!
There are other ways to support these unique therapy groups too such as donating and volunteering your time to help at fundraising events, so make sure to check out online for your nearest charity!
It's well worth it as while searching Google for images to use I was brought to tears by some of the faces obviously filled with pure joy, you should go have a peek :)
Let me know if you or someone you know is the owner of a therapy pet!
