Research has shown that the presence of a well-trained dog can lessen the physical and psychological stress of children.
Being in close proximity to a calm and gentle dog can help reduce a child's heart rate and blood pressure. With a dog by their side, children have been noted to demonstrate less behavioral, emotional and verbal distress when involved in potentially stressful activities.
