There is an amazingly strong bond between animals and people. Animals are accepting, non-threatening and non-judgmental, making it easier for people to open up. Some of the benefits of animal-assisted activities include:
Improved fine motor skills
Increased focus and attention
Increased self-esteem and ability to care for oneself
Reduced anxiety, grief and isolation
Reduced blood pressure, depression, and risk of heart attack or stroke
Because many children, teens and adults enjoy working with animals, animal-assisted therapies and activities can be particularly beneficial for individuals who are resistant to treatment or have difficulty accessing their emotions or expressing themselves in traditional therapies.
