The onotherapy is part of the assisted activities with animals. It’s considered supportive and co-therapy. The onotherapy, therapeutic activity assisted with the donkey, is addressed to all those who have emotional-relational difficulties. The physical contact with the donkey, friendly and reassuring animal, games and activities in the presence of the therapist, contribute considerably to the recovery of emotional well-being of children and adults.
Donkeys, with their slowness and gentleness that  eager to get lots of cuddles and caresses, with their non-verbal communication give so many positive emotions that will help people who live in situations of loneliness, anxiety and stress, suffering from Down syndrome, or hypertensive heart disease and children with ADD and ADHD.
