Daisy Delivers Smiles

Golden retriever and registered therapy dog Daisy and her trainer Brian Kling bring smiles to residents of Allerton House in Weymouth. Research shows that pet therapy offers comfort and enjoyment to older individuals in communities such as assisted living. The benefits of animal-assisted therapy go beyond the feelings of well-being generated by visits. Studies demonstrate that using dogs like Daisy in a range of activities can help people cope with serious medical issues and reduce stress and anxiety.
