Researchers at Oregon State University recently published a case study suggesting that a pet dog may encourage children with Cerebral Palsy (CP) or other disabilities to engage in more daytime physical activity. Taking care of a pet requires care by the owner (i.e. grooming, play, exercise). In this case, the child’s efforts to provide the dog’s care resulted in more physical activity and improved motor skills. Although this was a case study involving only one child, researchers hope to secure funding to continue these studies and improve CP children’s lives.
