P.E.T.S. (Patient Engagement Treatment Services)

I am thrilled to announce the launch of P.E.T.S. (Patient Engagement Treatment Services) – a division of DHLG – where we call attention to the important role of animals in health and healthcare, their positive impact on the human healing and dying journey, their role in relationship centered and compassionate care, and connect those doing this amazing work.

With my love for animals, and passion for their well-being, and my own and my wife’s personal positive experiences with pet therapy, the concept of P.E.T.S. was conceived in 2012.



Pets can ease loneliness, reduce stress, anxiety and depression, promote social interaction, encourage exercise and playfulness, and provide unconditional love and affection. Caring for a pet can help children grow up more secure and active or provide valuable companionship for older adults.

And now having the opportunity to both reflect on the current impact and also vision the future of animals in a healthCARING model I am thrilled to announce that P.E.T.S. is birthed.
