Therapy Dog Prep
Dogs who work with a handler to provide affection and comfort to members of the public are called therapy dogs. Examples include helping children to read at libraries or schools, visiting hospital patients, and visiting nursing home residents. Unlike service dogs, therapy dogs have no special rights and must obtain permission to enter public places.
Our Therapy Dog Prep class covers common animal-assisted therapy scenarios and will set you and your dog up for success in a public setting. We also review obedience skills, work through desensitization exercises, and provide opportunities to shadow active therapy dog teams in the community.
