The therapeutic value of dogs is undisputed in everyday life, which is why lending this energy to brighten the lives of those who are sick, elderly, or troubled in some way can be such a rewarding experience. Therapy dog work is one of the most incredible ways you can share the joy your dog gives you with others. Not every dog is suited for therapy work, but we can help you make this assessment and help you prepare you and your dog for therapy dog certification.
We have a monthly class that will prepare you in every way to become certified as a therapy dog and handler team so that you may go out to visit therapeutic facilities together. We are also lucky enough to be partnered with Paws for People Foundation, an organization that trains and places service dogs throughout the country, for anyone seeking more intense Service Dog training and certification.
Check our calendar and sign up for our next Therapy Dog Prep class so you and your beloved pooch can start spreading the love!
Are you anxiously awaiting a new baby and have the added stress of not knowing how your dog will react to the new family member? Well, we have a class that can help you prepare for this! Whether this your first baby or your dog’s first baby, we can help the new arrival be a smooth transition. Though it’s never too late, we recommend attending this class between your 4th and 6th month of pregnancy.
We hold this class at least once every month and your advance sign up is required. Check our calendar for upcoming classes. We recommend that you do NOT bring your dog to this class so that everyone can concentrate on the information without the distraction of all of the dogs there.
