The unconditional love given to humans by a dog is deeply healing to our soul. Even when we feel we can’t open our hearts up, dogs still give us love and heal our emotional wounds in ways we have yet to understand. Wearable Therapy’s CEO, Karla Tolstoy, is a big believer in the power of dog therapy. She donates her spare time to the St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog Program (SJA), helping with their dog therapy program.
According to the SJA, “Therapy Dogs can help meet the need for physical touch as stroking and touching a dog has been proven to lower blood pressure, calm people who are agitated, and refresh the mind of those who are confused. Dogs are completely accepting of people: they do not make judgments about a person’s looks, nor are they offended by what people might say to them. They offer unconditional affection.”
