I am Takashi Okumura, a social planner of NPO Japan Animal Therapy Association.
Thank you so much for your continued support to our association.
Having the mission to spread animal therapy, I am in charge of planning works for the association.
We are looking for colleagues who are willing to explore about the better way of humans and animals to live together.
Actually I got interested in the animal world just recently. Before, I had been living in a totally different world.
Even after knowing the activities of the animal therapy, I was a little skeptical of it at first.
I have been involved with many dogs and people while asking myself every day “is it really a meaningful activity for the animals?”
There are people who take this activity positively, and those who take it negatively.
I think there are various perspectives in reality.
However, now I see animal therapy as a very potential activity which allows a person to be like a person, and a dog to be like dog.
For that purpose, we have to recognize the difference between people and dogs, and we would like to pursue the relationships that allow each other to recognize their individuality.
As a handler of the therapy dogs, an "Animal Therapist" needs to know his (her) dog better than anyone.
Animal therapists can be said to be an entertainer, in terms of making the most out of the dogs personality, healing and entertaining people.
There is no healing ahead unless the animal therapist and the dog enjoy and understand each other.
”Know yourself, Know your dog, Know your partner"
It's not an easy job.
I noticed various things through my activities with dogs, and my way of living a life changed.
I would like to share such a wonderful experience with many people and expand the circle of the activities!
If you are interested in becoming an "animal therapist", I will gladly give explain, so please do not hesitate to contact us.
