Therapy Dog Training

Therapy Dog Prep Training

Therapy dogs provide comfort and companionship to people in nursing homes, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and other settings.  This course allows you and your dog to begin the process of becoming a certified therapy team through Therapy Dogs International (TDI).  In addition to valuable obedience training, you will have a chance during class to take the TDI evaluation.  Training makes time with your dog more enjoyable at home, and brightens the lives of those in need when you volunteer.
Requirements:  Your dog must be at least one year old, know basic obedience (stay, come, walk on a leash), and be tolerant of people and other dogs. Owners must present proof of dog’s checkup with veterinarian within the past year, and immunization record showing current vaccinations for rabies, distemper, hepatitis, and parvovirus.
