The GOTYA Canine Team

Whilst our canines are not certified therapy dogs, they are very much attuned to working with young people.

 

Our dogs help to:

  • Create a welcome distraction

  • Bring a sense of calm

  • Lower stress

  • Lower anxiety

  • Reduce aggression

  • Encourage activity

The GOTYA dogs attend the vast majority of our programs, unless we are working in a Forest or National Park where dogs are prohibited. 

 

They have a custom-made dog crate on the GOTYA 4WDs are insulated, comfortable and safe for our canine mates.
 

Young people engaging with our service for counselling, will usually find a dog in the therapy office to.
