Therapy Dog Services


Brisbane’s Largest Therapy Dog Services Provider

Aim & intended outcomes

Therapy dogs have a profound ability to positively impact people’s emotional well-being. At our organisation, we take pride in providing professional therapy dog services, exclusively employing paid and insured handlers who have undergone rigorous training and certification with us.

Our handlers are also currently working, accomplished professionals in various fields, including medicine, education, law enforcement, corporate management and mental health services.

Unlike other therapy dog providers, we ensure that our dog/handler teams are fully prepared to deliver the best therapy dog experience. The in-person nature of our training, conducted both at our training facility and in real-world settings, sets us apart from online alternatives.

These well-trained and certified teams work tirelessly to create a comforting and uplifting environment for individuals in need. Interacting with therapy dogs has been scientifically shown to release feel-good hormones, reduce stress and anxiety, and boost overall mood and well-being. This transformative impact makes therapy dog visits an invaluable asset to any organisation or workplace seeking to enhance the emotional health of its people.

At our core, we deeply value the positive impact of animal-assisted therapy, placing a strong emphasis on the importance of well-behaved dogs and skilled handlers.

Recent news has highlighted a few instances of therapy dog services not meeting expectations – it is our understanding that these dog/handler teams were unpaid and uninsured volunteers. They had received their training and certification via an online course where they self-report – having never been properly tested or proofed in-person by a professional.

When selecting a therapy dog provider, we strongly advise considering the following criteria:

1. Ensure they employ professional teams with extensive in-person training.
2. Confirm they carry insurance specifically covering therapy dog services.
3. Verify that they are subject to ongoing evaluation and review by their training and placement provider to maintain the highest standards.


Although we at Therapy and Support Animals love all dogs, we understand that not everyone does and certain religious beliefs, allergies and/or cultural beliefs may preclude interaction.

For that reason, our Team will typically remain stationary in an open area so those who wish to pat / love and cuddle our dogs can do so while the choice is also there not to be involved.
