Welcome to the fourth film in a series of mini-documentary films about the Human-Animal Bond and the ways animals help people.
Before the pandemic (when this was filmed), therapy animals were making finals week just a tad bit less stressful for college students. Can you imagine how excited students will be when these visits resume in person?
There are so many ways that animals help people. Sometimes animals help us with physical challenges that we can see, and sometimes the challenges are invisible to others. Moby the Therapy Dog does what he does best, which is to be a dog! His presence makes the therapist’s job a little bit easier and the session a whole lot more fun for the client.
This is the second mini-documentary in the series.
Filming the Canine Commandos was great because the kids were having such a great time working with the dogs that they didn’t even realize they were learning. Isn’t that the way it’s supposed to be? And how awesome that the dogs get trained so that they become more adoptable.
