Therapy Dog Class is designed to teach your friendly dog to be gentle and at ease with all types of people in a variety of situations and distractions that they will face in a hospital or other therapeutic setting. This class will develop your dog’s impulse control and socialize them to medical equipment you may encounter in the hospital. As a handler, you will learn to read your dog and help them navigate around equipment to provide comfort and joy to others.
Therapy work is not for every dog as it requires a certain temperament that loves to work, loves to be with people, and has the confidence to work through stressful situations.
If Therapy work with your dog is your goal let us know so we can help you get there!
