Welcome!
Ther-a-dog Services™ provides educational opportunities for children living with special needs.
Our mission is to make a positive impact on the lives of children
living with autism or other special needs—and their families.
Cindy and GusWe understand the challenges your child faces in a school setting. We also see the challenges parents and caregivers face at home.
Our solution is to provide animal assisted activities and animal assisted therapy in and out of the water!
 
 
 
Water and animals provide several psychological, physical, sensory, cognitive,  and recreational benefits.
Using water as a tool can provide instant rewards
Cam learning his colors! to any child living with special needs!
Here are some examples:
1. Improvement in strength, endurance, coordination, and balance.
2. Develop a positive mental attitude and promotes self-esteem, preparing the child to successfully engage in interpersonal relations.
3. Calm the child’s sensory system so that he/she can begin to cope with everyday demands (examples are:  reducing hyperactivity, decreasing tactile sensitivity, decreasing self-stimulatory behaviors and repetitive behaviors, etc.) .
4. It improves the child’s work behaviors (ie: attention span, concentration, ability to follow instructions, etc) thereby making a more receptive learner.
5. By engaging in regular recreational activities in the water, children can have a fun activity to look forward to.
 
This opportunity is available to any child
living with special needs!!
