SunDog Therapy is an occupational therapy practice dedicated to promoting health, wellbeing, and participation in meaningful activities for children and adults of all abilities.  

Occupational therapy (OT) improves a person’s ability to participate in everyday life and reach their fullest potential. We address physical, cognitive, and psychosocial needs through skill development, task adaptations, and environmental modifications. Our mission is to empower individuals to better engage in activities of daily living, work, rest, and leisure. We provide services throughout Orange County and Los Angeles, California.

What We Do:

What Makes Us Unique?

  • We incorporate specially trained dogs into OT intervention through the skilled implementation of animal assisted therapy (AAT). Our clients work towards their therapeutic goals while training dogs using positive relationship-based methods, learning how to care for dogs, and playing games together. This is often more meaningful, motivating, and engaging than traditional therapy. 
  • Our OT sessions take place in a friendly outdoor/indoor setting or in the natural environment (client’s chosen location such as the home, workplace, school, park, etc.). This makes our interventions more person-centered and purposeful. People are more likely to develop and improve their skills if practicing in typical day-to-day settings.
  • For people who love dogs but don’t need OT, we also offer dog training and recreational classes for anyone who wants to learn more about dogs and develop positive relationships with them.
