Support Dogs and Pediatric Therapy Session

0 Votes

Would you please provide some suggestions with regards to developing a policy for support dogs attending individual therapy sessions in a private pediatric practice? We do not have anything in place and feel the need to establish some guidelines for our clients, therapists, and other families who attend. Im particularly concern with regards to liability issues as well as for children or families who may have fears associated with animals or the safety of the dog. Our waiting room is not staffed and as the owner of the practice I am uncomfortable and wondering how we can make this work better.
