Therapy Dog Training
There is an extreme need for owner-dog team visits in our area. This training and
information will help prepare you and your dog to work effectively as a team in
a variety of environments. Therapy dogs visit nursing homes, group homes, and
schools. Class includes movies, site visits, and presentations. There will be optional
certification testing upon course completion. Registration with the Delta Society
which includes insurance is recommended. This class will help prepare dog and
owner for hospital testing too!
Shot records are a must and dogs should have a
friendly disposition.
