Therapy Dog Program

A Therapy Dog is an animal that provides a therapeutic benefit to its owner and the community through companionship. The animal provides comfort to individuals that are sick, kids in school, or retirement homes.  Unlike a service animal, a therapy dog is not always granted access to places of public accommodation.

Therapy Dogs do need to be specifically trained for all the loves that they are going to get! I will work with you to train your dogs to perform many key behaviors that will greatly assist you by creating a deeper bond with your dog, as well as assist you and your dog through the Therapy Dog process. 

Some of the training offered is very similar to the training we do for Service dogs, such as:

1) Dog will be trained to be calm and orderly in public places.

2) All of the behaviors learned while taking the obedience classes, will be tweaked and enforced during public access training.

3) Public Access training to include: Training in shopping malls, shopping centers, restaurants, cabs, trains, buses, doctors offices, business offices, outdoor markets, festivals, movie theaters, Airports, grocery stores, etc.

4) We will certify your dog as a Canine Good Citizen (CGC)

5) Dog will be trained to leave it and drop it. This teaches the dog that it cannot pick up anything off the ground or floor in any area.
