Does anyone in the UK have pat dogs come in to their nursing homes. I am in Shropshire and have been trying to find some one with dogs or animals to visit.

Hi Karen, We are lucky as several of the relatives who visit bring their dogs in. We recently had a lady who specifically wanted to see a Dalmatian so I put an appeal out on facebook.

Hi Karen, We are a Nursing Home based in Cookham Dean, Maidenhead and we have a lovely lady bring in her king charles spaniel named Harley. The Residents absolutely love her. The organisation is Pets as Therapy which is a national organisation and here is the website details https://petsastherapy.org. I hope this helps.

Hi Anne
Thank you for replying we do have some relatives who bring in their dogs but the residents have asked for some thing more regular. I will try the website you suggested. Thank you
