Therapy Dogs

Therapy Dogs are used in a variety of settings including hospitals, schools, rehab and long-term care facilities, libraries, veteran care programs, and many other facilities.  If you would like to learn how to become a Therapy Dog Team with your own dog, then join us for this six-week course!  We practice advanced behaviors necessary for you and your dog to interact in the community with different types of people in a variety of environments.  We will provide you with local testing information.  Prerequisite: CGC Title.
