Parent perceptions of animal therapy

13 October 2019

Parents of children and young people (6 to 16 years) who live in the United Kingdom are needed to give their opinion on animal therapy using dogs. You don’t even need to use animal therapy to take part. The survey contains demographic questions, questions exploring perceptions of therapy efficacy, and a scale on child anxiety. Can be completed multiple times, once per eligible child!


  • Have a child aged six to 16 years
