The therapy dog class is being offered to dogs and handlers with a CGC title that are looking to become certified therapy dog teams. These teams will be training to bring joy, emotional support and comfort to people in many different places including but not limited to schools and nursing homes.
Our Therapy Dog program will be run in a six week format. The first session will be a handler only class where you will learn what is expected of a therapy dog and what the class will entail. In class we will work towards achieving the skills need for the handler test which will be run during our last class.
Following this class you will be required to schedule 3 supervised visits with our evaluator at different facilities. Once this is successfully complete you will be able to become a certified therapy dog team through Alliance of Therapy Dogs.
