They say dogs are a man’s best friend. This might actually be true. Studies have shown that pets, especially dogs, can increase the happiness and well-being of the people they spend time with. This is why pet therapy has become an increasingly popular form of rehabilitation. Hernando County has an amazing volunteer organization called Nature Coast Therapy Dogs. They strive to bring happiness to those who are in nursing homes or hospitals, and so much more. Therapy dogs and their owners work together as a team to improve the lives of other people.
