A bill in the Maryland state legislature would require public schools to allow the use of therapy dogs across the state. There’s currently no Maryland-wide policy for these dogs. Under the law – filed in the House as HB713, and in the Senate as SB419 – certified canines would be permitted entry to offer emotional and scholastic support for students. How exactly that should happen would be left up to each county board of education.
