Event description

Description

Therapy Dog Preparation Class will help you determine if therapy work is an option for you and your dog while continuing to improve your relationship with your dog. Participants will work on advanced obedience skills as they prepare to meet the expectations for the AKC Good Citizenship Certification. They will learn special commands such as “Go Say Hi”, “Back Up”, and “Watch Your Step” to increase their ability to safely guide their dog throughout therapy environments. Advanced socialization skills will be developed as participants learn to help their dogs become comfortable around children, people with special needs, frail and/or elderly patients, medical equipment, and negotiating throughout institutions such as nursing homes, school buildings, therapy rooms, etc.. Participants will also be provided information about the variety of environments where therapy dogs work and organizations for therapy dog registration such as “Love on a Leash”, “Pet Partners” and “Therapy Dogs International”.

Each class is 1 hour long with the course lasting for 8 weeks. Instructed by Karen Lobdell.

Requirements:

  1. All dogs must be fully vaccinated for Rabies, Distemper Combo, Lepto, and Bordetella.
  2. Must have gone through one Basic or level 1 obedience class (some exceptions made. Please contact us for details or questions)
  3. Dogs must be on a 4 or 6 foot leash and a harness or regular collar.
