Therapy dogs have a great job. They provide comfort and joy to people in many different situations. Some therapy dogs visit people in nursing homes, hospitals, children’s shelters, and many other places. Their job is to give and receive love. They get lots of hugs and pats, give kisses, and just make people happy. Sometimes therapy dogs, like the one in the FBI, even visit people going through something bad or scary to help them feel better. Therapy dogs have to pass a lot of tests to prove that they will listen to their handlers, that they have good manners and obedience in public, and that they love people! The FBI Office for Victim Assistance started using a therapy dog for the first time in March 2009. It is a very exciting pilot program that has been incredibly successful!
