  • Is it Beneficial For The Puppies?
    Yes, absolutely. At Puppy Therapy London, we prioritise the well-being and health of our puppies above all, and each event is meticulously structured to ensure their care, safety, and happiness. Our puppies receive daily exercise, proper nutrition, regular check-ups with a veterinarian, and lots of love and attention from our trained handlers. Puppy therapy is a form of animal-assisted therapy that has been shown to improve mood, reduce stress and anxiety, and increase socialisation skills in humans. Our puppies are carefully selected to provide the best experience possible for our clients, while also ensuring their own happiness and comfort. We believe that our puppies benefit just as much from the therapy sessions as our clients do, making it a win-win situation for everyone involved. To prevent overwhelming the young pups, we maintain a ratio of no more than 2:1 (people to puppies) during events. The puppies have nothing but positive experiences at our events, and providing regular feedback to our breeders on their development is an integral part of our approach.
  • Where Do You Get The Puppies From? Do You Own Them?
    At Puppy Therapy London, we work with a trusted and experienced breeder who carefully selects and trains our therapy puppies. We do not own the puppies but rather provide them with a temporary home where they receive the necessary care and attention to fulfil their role as therapy dogs. Our breeders ensures that the puppies are healthy to provide comfort and support to our clients. Our mission extends beyond providing pups; we're dedicated to promoting awareness of ethical breeding practices and highlighting red flags to combat puppy farms. We're taking a unique approach to spreading this awareness and guiding prospective pet owners on what to avoid when seeking their forever companions. As a nation of dog lovers, there's still much to learn about distinguishing 'good' practices. We take great care in selecting our puppies to ensure that they are suitable for their role and have the right temperament to work with people of all ages and abilities. Our puppies are treated with love and care, and we ensure that they receive the best possible socialisation before they go to their new home.
