What is a Facility Dog
A Facility Dog is a specially trained Service Dog that works with a volunteer or professional who is trained by a program. The work of a Facility Dog can include visitations or professional therapy in one or more locations. Public access is permitted only when the dog and handler, who is a trained volunteer or professional, is directly working with a client with a disability.
Facility Dogs participate in Canine-Assisted Therapy (CAT). CAT is a goal-directed intervention designed to promote improvement in physical, social, emotional and/or cognitive functioning of the person(s) involved and in which a specially trained dog-handler team is an integral part of the treatment process.
