Corporate Destress - Donation Based
Nepean Therapy Dogs offers workplaces the opportunity to relax with our therapy dogs for a short while to take the weight of their work pressure off their shoulders. Simply spending time with the dogs can cause stress levels in the body to decrease, therefore allowing employees to work happily and efficiently.
Informative Speaking - Donation Based
Therapy dog services are commonly perceived as assistance dog services, but the two are vastly different. Nepean Therapy Dogs offers to inform groups and individuals in the community what our therapy dogs do, and how therapy dog services may be beneficial for them. Groups can hear the stories of our volunteers on how they have helped those around them through their therapy dog work.
Emergency Visits - Free Service Based on Availability
Nepean Therapy Dogs also offers therapy dogs in response to last minute calls. These include calls for individuals who have been in an emergency of some sort or are experiencing acute mental illness. Only our most experienced therapy dog teams make these visits as they are highly trained in these sensitive environments. This service assists in distracting individuals from the emergency and allow them to feel calm and happy.
Please call either Nicole Celeban on 0427 393 699 or Paula Smith 0413 641 661
