Overall, each study looked at social and behavioral domains. Sellers and Richeson specifically tested for changes in socialization and agitated behaviors, while Nordgren and Marx looked at factors including quality of life and time of engagement in AAT.

I will draw up a table which classifies the dogs of Grimm Brothers’ Fairy Tales for the purpose of the dog’s appearance, their feature and people who appear with dogs and analyze it in this dissertation. Then, I will disclose the position of dogs in Grimm Brothers’ Fairy Tales. In addition, I will examine them and whether they reflect a reality

Pediatric cancer patients were also more optimistic and motivated during treatments when dogs were present. ”Therapy animals in pediatric cancer studies improved motivation to participate in treatment protocol, to maintain their motivation over time, and to want to “get better” or stay optimistic” (Sobo, 2006) , (Barker, 2008) .
