  • We had one at an agency I worked at and it was a really great experience! The agency was for children suffering from all sorts of difficulties (Bi-Polar, depression, abuse/neglect, BPD, etc). The children loved to earn time with the dog and he really seemed to bring the kiddos up when he came into the room. We used the dog as an incentive as well as a tool to calm an escalated child. (under careful observation of course)
