Therapy dogs visit rest homes, hospitals, schools, youth centers and more providing comfort to everyone they visit. A therapy dog is calm, gentle, and loves receiving affection from everyone. They do not jump on, paw at, or bark at other people or other dogs.
Therapy dogs can visit establishments regularly or be on-call with a crisis relief unit. This is very stressful work for both the handler and their dog, but also very rewarding to provide the people in greatest need with the comfort and love only a dog can give.
This program prepares you and your dog as a therapy team with basic obedience and practice for therapy dog test items. Bring a friend and share the cost!
