Pets have proven health and therapeutic benefits: reducing stress and anxiety, lowering blood pressure, increasing positive feelings. Recent studies show that the simple act of stroking a dog’s fur prompts the release of the "feel good" hormone, oxytocin, in both humans and in dogs. This hormone release promotes feelings of bonding and well-being, and PPH’s therapy programs are built on this important science.
