Greyhounds Help People with Brain Damage

ITV Tyne Tees has published a video showing how greyhounds are an integral part of therapy with a project called NeuroHounds. 

They write: "Greyhounds are helping people with brain damage in Gateshead, in a new kind of pet therapy, which could be rolled out across the UK.

"The dogs visit patients at the Chase Park Neuro Centre in Whickham once a week for a walk and a grooming session. The activity helps patients, who may have had strokes, head injuries, or neurological conditions such as MS or Motor Neurone Disease, with their co-ordination and speech."
