Would you like to become the “human” part of a Pet Therapy Team but don’t know how or where to start? We can help.
Does your dog already know the basic sit, stay, and down commands? Does your dog know how to loose leash walk? If so, you’ve already started.
Your dog must be at least one year of age and have lived with you, the potential handler, for at least six months.
Your dog must be reliably potty trained.
Your dog must pass a thorough health screening by your veterinarian and be up-to-date on all vaccines.
For further information on Therapy Dog training courses, we recommend Angel Dogs or
Cadence K9‘s. They offer training courses to prepare you and your dog for your Therapy Dog Evaluation.
Please tell them that Pawsitive Friendships referred you!
EVALUATION AND REGISTRATION:
All Pawsitive Friendships Pet Therapy teams MUST be registered with Pet Partners or Therapy Dogs Inc. Why? Because once you’re a registered team, you’re covered under their volunteer liability insurance policy.
