Dogs and Therapies for Humans

We are used to seeing dogs in situations such as rescues, identifying explosive devices, acting as guides for people with disabilities, or being part of our families, but it has not been so common, until now, to see dogs involved in carrying out therapies so that people with depression or anxiety can overcome it.
