Frequently Asked Questions

Do funeral homes use grief therapy dogs?

The use of grief therapy dogs in funeral homes is an extension of the services therapy dogs offer in the community. Adults and children, previously unable to openly discuss their losses, share their feelings with therapy dogs, who provide a calm, loving presence to those in grief.

What is the purpose of a grief counseling session?

Grief counseling is intended to help the client grieve in a healthy manner, to understand and cope with the emotions they experience, and to ultimately find a way to move on (Therapy Tribe, n.d.). This can be accomplished through existential therapy, individual therapy, group therapy, and/or family therapy (Mastrangelo & Wood, 2016).

Do dogs and cats experience grief?

Grief is real for dogs and cats and I personally suspect it exists in horses and other species, as well. Unfortunately, there is no treatment to instantly take away a grieving pet’s ache, but there are a few steps a pet parent can take to comfort a crying soul. Without a doubt, time helps heal a wounded heart.

How do you train a therapy dog for therapy?

You can choose to train a therapy dog on your own or with assistance. Keehn, who helps owners train their dogs as one-half of a therapy team, advises that you look for a formal organization that lists well-educated trainers on their websites to assist you on your path.
