Therapy Dogs of Vermont (TDV) is a non-profit organization of highly-trained dogs and their volunteer handlers. Our handler/canine teams work on the emotional health of hospital patients, students in educational settings, residents of nursing/retirement homes, and correctional facilities. Our handler/canine teams bring joy and comfort to people in a host of Vermont hospitals and other health-related venues, nursing and retirement homes, child and adult day care centers, and correctional facilities. They also travel to area schools and universities, giving presentations in the community to bring young people in touch with really great dogs and show them what can be accomplished with love, training, and a desire to help others.
