Therapy Dog

Meet Basil The Ultimate Therapy Dog

This little guy is hypoallergenic and knows how to get to work.  He is very helpful with reluctant children and teens as they become comfortable with the therapy process.  Adults love him too.

The introduction of Animal Assisted Therapy with Basil happens slowly and he knows exactly how to make you feel comfortable in the therapy room.  Inquire with this therapist if you believe you could benefit from this service.


Animal-assisted psychotherapy can provide numerous psychological and physiological benefits. People who interact with animals for therapy may experience improvements in health, including:

  • Decreased stress levels
  • Reduced anger and aggression
  • Decreased hostility toward the self and others
  • Improved social interactions
  • Decreased heart rate and blood pressure
  • A rise in the release of beta-endorphins
  • Improvement in self-esteem, patience, and trust
  • Sense of empowerment
