Shilohs At Work ┬╗Therapy Dogs

Animal Assisted Activities such as Canine Therapy offer many physiological and physical benefits to those in need. The Delta Society defines AAA as providing opportunities for motivational, educational, recreational and/or therapeutic benefits to enhance the quality of life. Official AAA organizations require very stringent temperament testing for all dogs participating in their programs. Multiple Shiloh Shepherds have proven themselves to be socially confident in character, predictable and reliable in nature, remarkably intuitive - demonstrating the most gentle affection with fragile persons & children.
