Therapy Dog

 Dogs are natural therapists.  Therapy dog classes teach your dog the skills they will need to give emotional support and loving therapy to those needing the special love only a dog can give.  Classes help a dog to accept all the things they might encounter in a hospital or nursing home environment.  Dogs can even qualify to be “Tail Waggin Tutors” where they help children with reading difficulties by being non-judgmental listeners at libraries and schools. At the completion of the course an evaluation is conducted by a certified Therapy Dog International Evaluator.  Therapy Dog International provides insurance and support for therapy teams all over the world.

 4 classes - $45
