These happy pups will be at the Sioux Falls Regional Airport to say hello to flyers before their planes take off on a new adventure!
Alliance of Therapy Dogs is an organization that works with businesses across the country to bring therapy dogs to hospitals, nursing homes, and even airports. According to its website, therapy dogs and their owners with the Alliance of Therapy Dogs are volunteers. They visit airports on a weekly or monthly basis.
These volunteers come with their well-behaved pets for the sole reason of helping others smile during a stressful period like a flight delay. That being said, the programs are expanding. Some airports use many teams (owners and dogs) who take rotating shifts so that every day, passengers can see and pet a therapy dog.
The next time you're flying with the Sioux Falls Regional Airport, make sure you say hello to the four-legged friends of the sky!
