THERAPY DOGS NATIONWIDE (TDN)

General Details

Therapy Dogs Nationwide is a national Charity where visiting volunteers take their own dogs into establishments to give comfort, distraction, and stimulation.

Our volunteers have the unique privilege of volunteering with their own temperament tested Therapy Dogs;  some with over 10 years experience and always focused on benefiting people in the community.

The use of animals especially Dogs as therapy is not a new idea. Dogs have been used in the care sector for over 40 years.  Many of our volunteers have their roots with Lesley Scott-Ordish who was a pioneer in visiting by taking your own pet dog to nursing homes.

Therapy Dogs Nationwide dogs have also shown to help with special needs and autistic children and adults by giving focus and providing a calming environment.

We regularly visit local hospitals and hospices where patients and staff interact with our dogs and look forward to their visits
