    Dogs on Call

    Your child may enjoy a visit from a Dogs on Call team, providing a welcome break from the medical routine and helping to create a more familiar environment.

    Dogs on Call teams visit the pediatric inpatient units regularly, and the outpatient clinics by appointment. The dog may visit in a resource room on the floor or in the patient's room, where it can sit on the floor, a chair or on a clean sheet on the bed. Visits typically last from 5 to 10 minutes, although that can vary. Children may pet, play with or watch the dog.

    The teams only visit children who are not in isolation. If you prefer not to have a dog team visit your child, let a child life specialist know or tell the Dogs on Call volunteer who knocks on your child's door.
