PAWWS to Heal: Animal Therapy

Standard

Yesterday in Juventud we had a visit from two ladies from PAWWS to Heal and their two therapy dogs. They explained to us what their organization does and how it works to use therapy animals to help children with anger management, bullying, behavioral disorders and trauma. They taught us how to approach a dog, how to read the dog’s body language and how to best care for and interact with an animal. The kids enjoyed giving the dogs treats and playing around for a bit. We learned a lot about animal therapy and of course loved spending time with the dogs!

Ayer en Juventud tuvimos una visita de dos mujeres de PAWWS to Heal y sus dos perros de terapia. Nos explicaron que hace su organizacion y como usa animales para ayudar a ninos con problemos de manejo de la ira, abuso, trastornos emocionales y trauma. Nos ensenaron como a acercarse a un perro, como a leer el lenguaje corporal del perro y como a cuidar a un animal. Los ninos disfrutaron dar premios al perro y jugar. Aprendemos mucho sobre la terapia con animales y nos gusto pasar tiempo con los perros!
