Top 10 Therapy Dog Breeds

Quote:
A therapy dog is one that is trained to provide comfort and affection to individuals in nursing homes, hospitals, schools, hospices and other areas. Therapy dogs are also useful for children who have autism and various learning disabilities. What makes a therapy dog different from a service dog (such as those utilized by individuals with physical disabilities) is that they typically do not perform tasks. Because all that is required is an even temperament and a surplus of love and affection, many breeds make great therapy dogs.

Here’s why German Shepherds made the list: Top 10 Therapy Dog Breeds - PetGuide

Interesting. I will be making my first therapy dog visit to a nursing home with my female GSD next week. Had hoped to do it this week but my schedule did not agree with that plan.

If someone wanted to get a German Shepherd that looks like this one, what type of German Shepherd would they look for?

Could be a West Germen Showline.

Color does not seem dark enough to be Showline unless American Showlines are that light. Not familiar with them. I would say a pretty BYB dog. I see a lot that are pale tan...no particular line.
