Therapy Dogs

The Grove Education Centre has recently formed a partnership with Therapeutic Dog Services Incorporated (TDS Inc.)

TDS will be delivering Animal Assisted Intervention (AAI) programs to all students on a weekly basis.

Research tells us that Dog Therapy promotes student well-being by encouraging healthy and active lifestyles through safe, fun interactions with animals.

‘’The program is a goal directed intervention designed to promote improvement in physical, social, emotional and/or cognitive functioning of which a specially trained animal handler is an integral part’’ (TDS Inc., 2018)
