PROGRAM A

Therapy Dog Visits

Having an appropriately trained Therapy Dog on site is a proactive approach towards creating a healthier workplace environment.

Therapy Animals Australia offers Therapy Dog visits to a wide range of workplaces. Our Therapy Dogs and handlers provide a welcome break from the day to day demands and stresses placed on staff, lifting the mood, helping to boost staff morale and reduce stress levels.

The calming effect that is achieved from spending time interacting with a dog, can help employees to feel more relaxed placing them in a better position to be more productive and to manage stressful situations more effectively.

Our program enables workplaces to train their own onsite Therapy Dog that complies with the Service Animals Australia Essential Standards for Therapy dogs.

Our team offers the expertise, knowledge and support required to help workplaces manage logistics and plan for interactions that are most beneficial for their staff.

In addition to specific content, our sessions also bring staff together and are a great way of implementing team building activities. Introducing a Therapy Dog into a workplace encourages interactions between staff that may not have taken place naturally. The shared experience, helps employees to feel more connected, increasing the likelihood of them working together as a team in the future.

Our PAWS at Work programs typically result in feelings of gratitude from employees. Initiatives that aim to improve workplace environments are appreciated by staff, often leading to increased feelings of job satisfaction and an increase in staff retention rates.
