There is nothing like
the feeling you experience when you see your dog bring joy, love
and happiness to a child or adult in need. Dogs have that
beautiful, wonderful ability to communicate without words, to aid
in therapy and rehabilitation and to fill a lonely life with love
and companionship. Ten years ago, Therapy Dog classes did not
exist. Yet, several of our students were already visiting nursing
homes and hospitals with their well-mannered canine partners who
had successfully completed our Advanced obedience classes. They
helped pioneer animal assisted therapy in this area.
Today we offer classes specifically designed for training Therapy
Dogs, as do several other organizations. Here's what makes our
classes unique: our instructors and certified Therapy Dog handlers
LOVE therapy work so much that we take therapy dog training
seriously. We know the hospital and nursing home environment and we
know how careful and controlled the dogs must be around expensive
monitoring equipment and potentially fragile people. We realize
that not all patients - or administrators - are comfortable around
dogs, so every dog that enters the therapy setting makes a
long-lasting impression on every person it meets. This class is for
dogs who have earned their CGC.
The class covers skills needed to pass
the Delta Society(Pet
Partners), Therapy Dogs International, and the
Inc. Therapy Dog Tests.
