“Dogs laugh, but they laugh with their tails.”

This past month the residents of Primrose in Mankato enjoyed the company of Therapy Dogs International group. Plenty of laughs and tail wagging was shared that day. Six different dogs from the Therapy Dogs International group joined us for an afternoon of fun to show us some tricks and keep us company.

Therapy Dogs International is a volunteer organization that is dedicated to regulating, testing and registering therapy dogs. All breeds can be therapy dogs.

The residents enjoyed seeing the variety of dogs that the group brought in. The group of owners were very informative and discussed the process of becoming a therapy dog. The dog owners also explained what kind of dog they have, age, breed, and other fun facts about their beloved animals.

Many of the residents here at Primrose of Mankato are animal lovers, and many grew up with dogs! The residents enjoyed the company of the therapy dogs and are looking forward to the next time they come back!
