Train your own therapy dog

We take inspiration from the Australian organisation, MindDog, which “assists mental health sufferers to procure, train and certify psychiatric assistance dogs.”

While Sunshine is unlikely to progress to this level (though you never know), we take heart in this organisation’s wholistic approach to empowering both human and animal along the journey.

If you are looking to train your own assistant dog, their article “Choose the Right Dog” is an excellent place to start.
