Therapy Prep

If you have been lucky enough to witness the amazing effect a dog can have on a sick or elderly individual, then you will automatically understand the benefit of therapy dogs. If you haven’t experienced it, you must ñ it is truly incredible to watch a sick little boy or girls face light up when a dog enters the room. And we are happy to get to provide this awesome gift to anyone that wants to give back in their community. Not every dog is cut out for therapy, but we can help asses, train, and then certify your dog for therapy work. Even if your dog is not cut out for therapy (or you don’t own a dog), we can certify handlers and pair you with a dog that is certified to local hospitals and nursing homes. We have a preparatory class that you can take before the certification day (which is held at an independent therapy certification association) that helps prepare owners and their dogs. Once you pass the certification, you can join other clients of ours and visit local hospitals and nursing homes to lift the spirits. Check our calendar out to see when the next class and certification will be held; you must sign up in advance.
