What are some potential limitations or challenges associated with integrating therapy dogs into various therapeutic settings, and how can these obstacles be addressed to maximize the power of therapy dogs?
First, we need to understand that not all dogs are suitable to become therapy dogs. If your dog shows the slightest sign of aggression, this isn’t the path for it. The most common potential limitations or challenges associated with the integration of therapy dogs are the potential allergies of the person needing therapy, the unpredictable temperament of the dog, and the legal and liability issues concerning the integration of therapy dogs in medical institutions. There are also ethical considerations regarding the use of therapy dogs. To address these concerns, ensure your dog is properly trained, has all the necessary certifications required, and that you take care of its well-being.
