7. Can a therapy dog be used to provide comfort during
or after a disaster?
No. It is unsafe for the people impacted by disaster, the responders, the handler and the dog. Canine teams
require special training, temperament, handling, and
stress management skills to effectively and safely handle
the intensity and complexity of the environment
and emotions following crisis.
