Which dogs make the best therapy dogs?


Registered Member
Is there any particular breed that makes better therapy dogs than others? Mom is in a nursing home and there is a beautiful Rottweiler that comes around every week to visit. He is a gentle giant and loves to be petted. Rottweilers have a bad reputation I think but this one is wonderful.

I'm not an expert, but I've seen a lot of golden retrievers and Yorkshire terriers doing the job in nursing homes and hospitals. They both seem to be friendly breeds who are easy to train. I've seen a few cats doing the job too. Therapy animals seem to do a world of good.

Sometimes the right animal for the job is a horse.
