Training Hiatus

Diana will be taking a training hiatus from July-October 2019.  Classes will resume in November 2019.  

Therapy Dog Prep

Therapy Dog Teams volunteer in a wide variety of areas (assisted living, hospitals, reading programs, etc.) and share the joy of interacting with your dog. Our Therapy Dog Prep class teaches what a Therapy Dog Team is and how to become a Therapy Dog Team with the skills needed to pass the Therapy Dog International (TDI) evaluation (and other therapy dog organizations).  

Our class includes:

  • Learning about different therapy dog organizations, how to decide if your dog would be a good therapy dog, and how to decide where to volunteer with your dog
  • Training your dog to politely greet people using assistance devices (wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, canes).
  • Improving confidence and focus around distractions such as food and noise.
  • Taking the CGC/CGCA/CGCU tests during our last class.

Therapy Dog Prep

Our six class Therapy Dog Prep course will be offered in April 2020.  The class fee is $150.
