Visiting Programme

The visiting programme is at the heart of what Therapy Dogs Nationwide does. We visit a wide range of establishments including :

  • Retirement Homes
  • Nursing Homes
  • Hospices
  • Prisons
  • Psychiatric Units
  • Schools

It has been shown that the visits provided by a therapy dog can be extremely beneficial and have a positive impact upon quality of life.


Our dogs and human visitors are both carefully screened to ensure that they are suitable for the role. If you are interested in becoming a visiting volunteer or would like a visit from a therapy dog please contact us.
