Medical studies have consistently shown that patients benefit from therapy dog visits. One recent study of 59 adults showed that following a therapy dog visit their energy levels increased, respiratory rated calmed significantly and pain scores decreased by over 20%. Mood scores improved by over 60% with the patients feeling less tense, anxious, angry, tied depressed and dejected. Now in A Doctor's Guide to Dog Therapy and Healing, Dr. Dawn Marcus showcases the wide range of research that shows the therapeutic and healing power of people of all ages and with a wide range of health conditions. These research findings are brought to life through the personal stories of healing from dog owners across the United States and Canada. She shows you how to unleash the healing power of your own dog, describes how to effectively add a dog to the home of someone with a chronic condition, explains how the family dog can with chronic health conditions, and teaches how to train a companion dog to be a certified therapy dog to help others. A Doctor's Guide to Dog Therapy and Healing will be of interest to dog owners , people wondering how to help family and friends coping with chronic illnesses, and individuals considering training their dogs for therapy work.

Dr Marcus is a consultant for Del Monte's "Power of Paws" program, encouraging human health through dog companionship. Dr. Marcus has trained her two wheaten golden terriers to be therapy dogs.
