Therapy Dog

3 Things you should know about therapy dogs

       1. Therapy dogs are allowed in schools, hospitals, and retirement homes

       2. They must be well-behaved and obtain a certification from a national organization

       3. These dogs help bring happiness to others by assisting in social interaction, encouraging

       movement, and lowering blood pressure, among other things.

It isn't very common to have specialized classes for therapy dog training. That's why I offer it! I really enjoy helping you learn how to be a therapy dog handler, as well as preparing your dog for their certification test. I will help walk you through the necessary steps to achieve your goals as quickly and smoothly as possible!
