Therapy Dog Training

Therapy Dog Prep Training NEW

During this course, you and your dog will begin the process of becoming a certified therapy team through Therapy Dogs International (TDI) as you learn to work together in a number of different situations. In addition to valuable obedience training, you and your dog will have one chance during class to take the TDI evaluation. Training is designed to make time with your dog more enjoyable at home, and to brighten the lives of those in need when you serve as volunteers. 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.
