Today was pawsitively amazing as therapy dogs paid a special visit to Merchantville School
. These furry friends brought smiles, wagging tails, and a whole lot of joy to our students and staff. It's incredible to see the positive impact these therapy dogs have on our school community. Therapy dogs are dogs that work with a handler to provide affection and comfort to members of the public. These pups may visit schools, hospitals, or nursing homes,
to name a few places. Any breed can train to work as a therapy dog, but some are used more commonly than others. Labradors are a top choice for therapy dog due to their gentle natures. For those who are a little dog shy, a smaller breed like a Pug, Pomeranian, or a Beagle would make a good match.
