I have a random question, and it comes from a video I saw of a therapy dog for someone on the Autistic Spectrum. I see that therapy dogs are trained a lot for people on the Autistic spectrum.
As far as I know, which i’m pretty confident in, being a neurologist agreed with me, but I am for sure not on the autistic spectrum, I only mention this because it runs in my family, thus i’m predisposed but it just seems I got that ADHD.
My question is, do they train therapy dogs for people with ADHD?
I could see tons of uses for this, and similarities.
For starters being the emotional dysregulation people with ADHD have, this seems like something a therapy dog could help with.
Also a lot of therapy dogs are used to treat the comorbidities of people on the Autistic spectrum, but people with ADHD share a fair amount of common comorbidities name depression and anxiety based disorder, OCD, and others I could see therapy dogs in great use for.
I’m just kinda curious if this is a thing?
Also could you like train a dog, to like notice when you are distracted and remind you? I mean this one i’m not sure if its even possible, but it would be nice if we had therapy dogs, that could possibly notice from a persons behavior and mannerisms if they are distracted or more likely possible procrastinating, and like bark or something.
