Dogs that Make a Difference


Formats & editions


These are inspiring tales of four-legged heroes that help change countless lives every day.

Meet Lucy the Labrador, who helps autistic children come out of their shell; Paris, whose special connection with a stroke victim helped his recovery; Elmo, the poodle with whom prisoners let down their guard; and Maggie, whose easy going nature prompts pensioners to reach out to her. These and other therapy dogs leave a lasting paw print on the hearts of everyone they meet.

Volunteers with the Delta Society share their stories of the people they have come to know, the lessons they have learned and the ways they have seen firsthand how a bundle of soft fur, a wagging tail and a wet nose can make a difference to someone's life. And information from Delta's dog training expert will help you enhance the special qualities of your own dog.

These are inspiring tales of four-legged heroes that help change countless lives every day.

'They are ordinary dogs. It's the effect they have on us that is extraordinary.' Kitty Flanagan Delta ambassador
