Therapy Dog Prep Seminar -Thursday July 11th

This offering of Therapy Dog Prep is being offered in a single 3 hour seminar on Thursday, July 11th from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. A seminar can be a perfect option for those who have a hard time attending a weekly offering.

Therapy Dog Prep: Therapy dogs and their handlers are in demand at hospitals, senior homes, schools and other places where dogs bring comfort to people in need. Although therapy dogs require a great social temperament, they also require a high level of training.

Every organization has their own testing to become a fully-fledged Therapy Dog. This class begins to prepare your dog for those tests.

To enter this class, your dog will already need to be:

  • At least 10 months year of age
  • Social and outgoing towards people (men, women and children)
  • Minimal jumping and/or mouthing
  • Not heavy leash pullers
  • Not reactive to other dogs

Dogs DO NOT need strong obedience skills to be excellent therapy dogs, but should have generally great manners and calmer temperaments. Dogs who show any aggression -to human or canine-, however minor, will be excused from this seminar.

Please note that this is NOT service dog training. Therapy dogs are for comforting people other than their handlers. Service Dogs are purposefully trained for their own human. This is not a suitable course for service dog training.
