The benefits of Animal Assisted Therapy range from relationship building to decreasing stress responses and beyond; animal partner interactions are based on individual client needs.
service animals, Emotional Support Animals?
At Kindness Corner Farm, PLLC we are a private practice that incorporates animal partners into our work. Our animal partners live on the farm and live out their lives as animals first and therapy partners second, this differs from service animals or emotional support animals because the animals at Kindness Corner Farm, PLLC are not trained specifically for a job that assists humans, they are trained for behaviors and obedience but not for tasks such as detecting seizures or guiding a person who is visually impaired.
