Zac & Kristi discuss how pets can make Therapy and life in general less intimidating. Animal Assisted Therapy can help bring people into the moment and combat the anxiety that often comes with unfamiliar situations.
Animals will teach you patience and responsibility. Discipline and physical fitness seems to be a natural result of dog ownership in particular. Zac shared a story about having a Beta-Fish for his son to learn responsibility only to learn that they can survive almost anything.
Disclaimer: Kristi is not a certified Animal Assisted Therapist but she is working to get Gator certified in the near future!
