                                                                Why are dogs so important 

    Heyward Giulia, “Miami-Dade’s therapy dogs are providing comfort to victims’ families” By The New Times June/27/2021

    Bowser, a therapy dog, helped victims in the “deadly Collapse of champlain towers south condos in surfside continue comforting their loved ones”. Even some people embraced Bowser and they sometimes took photos with him. Animal assisted therapy is an increasingly popular treatment for crisis and those who are suffering from post traumatic stress disorder. That’s why a use of therapy dogs like Bowser helps reduce levels of stress and anxiety. This is why dogs are so important for humans because it can help them gain people’s confidence, give people love and attention.

    Bowser is a firefighter help dog. He is or was “ currently working to receive national certification to become a critical incident stress dog”. Basically means he could leave the state to help others who are endangered and in serious emergency situations. A weird fact I didn’t know was “ therapy animals were used in children’s hospitals as covid-19 decreased the number of visitors. The program was called the “ Buddy system” to help strategies to minimize departures from safety protocols and reduce stress.
