Therapy Dog for Autistic Child

Dear All,

My son is 3,5 years old and he was diagnosed with some spectrum of autism. I was suggested that therapy dog could be good for him. So now I am searching for therapy dog in Zurich area or around. Does any of you can recommend somebody or maybe you have dog who likes playing with small children?

Thank you for your help in advance!

Best,
Natalia

Re: Therapy Dog for Autistic Child

Hi there,
This is a school for different kinds of service dogs. Even though the school is in Basel but they provide services through out the whole country.
I hope this organization can help you with more information as well.
