Karen Luker and Gogo "talk" about The Ottawa Therapy Dogs (OTD), a registered charity which has been active in the Ottawa area since 2000. Currently 100 members regularly visit over 1000 clients.
Research confirms the physical, emotional and social benefits of animal assistance and therapy with people. The contribution made by OTD to the local community, although difficult to measure, is highly valued by clients and their families as well as health and educational professionals.
