Should My Dog Be a Therapy Dog?

  • Does your dog have what it takes to be a therapy dog?

  • Is he already a therapy dog and you’re wondering if he should be?

  • Are you looking to find the type of facility that best suits your dog?


    Despite our desire to give back to our community there’s a great deal to consider before deciding that a dog is suitable for therapy dog work. It takes a special dog to do it well. Environmental and social confidence are a good start, but what else?

Whether you’re thinking about volunteering your dog for therapy work, or already do, our half day presentation will give you plenty to ponder and watch for so that you can make the best decision for your dog. There are limited spots are available to have your dog evaluated, and auditors attend for free.

Express your interest in attending a Saturday workshop by submitting the form below and we’ll see about getting one on the schedule for you.
