Prerequisites: Dogs must be 1 year of age or older.
Documentation of rabies, negative fecal exam, and other vaccinations are
required prior to starting the class. Dogs must be well-mannered and neutral
with other dogs. They should be friendly and outgoing towards strangers. It is
recommended that dogs have some obedience training, as well as CGC training,
but not required.
During the first 3 classes, students will get a good
introduction to therapy dog skills, qualities, skills needed, and the uses of
therapy dogs. After the first 3 classes, students may be able to take a
therapy dog test, and do the required observations, leading to a therapy dog
certification with the Alliance of Therapy Dogs (ATD).
