The training of therapy dogs centers in two areas: Basic obedience and ability capable to assist someone, as an example helping a person remove a jacket. When working with the therapy dog, the dog should see the persons as collaborators by having them feed the dog, play with them, and giving them basic commands like “sit” or “down”.Therapy dogs help person to overcome their phobias, depressions and illnesses of nervous origin. Because of their relaxing effect the contact with these dogs reduce the lonely feeling that affects the life of certain persons.
