therapy dogs at dynamo

The resident therapy dogs at Dynamo Camp, the SeriousFun camp in Italy, play a vital role in enhancing the camper experience. Their profound impact on campers and families inspired the creation of the Dynamo Dogs Caregiving School Project. The program trained ten puppies as therapy dogs and pair them with ten children living with serious illnesses or motor disabilities.

For campers, these dogs can foster connection and calm.

And for siblings, it’s a chance to feel less alone in a family where the focus is on the child who is ill.

Camper families are educated on how to live with and care for their therapy dog.

At the end of camp, families left with their new puppy companion. 

With a gift of support TODAY, you can make sure that inspiring programs like this remain available to kids and families, totally free of charge.
