To perform each of our interventions, from CuranDOG we believe essential to analyze and meet each of the people with whom we work, in order to adapt to the needs of each case.

 

Therefore, our intervention programs consist of the following phases:

1. Analysis

of needs and knowledge of program participants.

2. Contact.

First visit is free.

3. Development

of the initial work plan based on the adaptations to the collective involved: through a program tailored to the capabilities and needs.

4. Initiation.

Starting program.

5. Control.

Final evaluation and monitoring.

-Our TAP programs are always accompanied by progress reports and a final report is delivered to the center/particular after the Intervention Program.-

Basis for Animal Assisted Interventions.

The animals do not judge.

They have a predictable behavior that increases confidence in patients.

They favor a relaxed atmosphere that facilitates the therapist-patient relationship (catalyst).

They are a source of unconditional acceptance.
