What you'll do
Immersed in the verdant Parco di Veio, at the gates of Rome between wild plants and protected trees, donkeys and dogs guide us to discover the animal world with all the benefits that the life in the open air entails and above all the interaction with our friends in four paws. What is the Pet Therapy? The expression "pet therapy" is used to indicate those activities that exploit the positive effects given by the human-animal relationship through specific approach methodologies, to provide scientifically recognized benefits. This is an intervention that can be aimed at users of all ages, with goals for improving the psycho-physical state, good mood and well-being in general, the important thing is that this approach takes place with the help of specially educated animals. It has now been proven that activities with animals can make a valuable contribution to improving the quality of life, especially for those who are forced to live in the big cities, rarely have contact with everything related to nature. At Antas we organize open-air days with an approach to Pet Therapy carried out thanks to professionals trained in IAA (Assisted Activities with Animals), together with our dog friends and our donkeys.
