Therapy dogs provide therapy to individuals other than their handlers, visiting places such as hospitals, schools, nursing homes, and other such institutions. A therapy dog has no more legal rights than a pet dog, except as granted by the institution.


Prerequisites for this class are: sit, down, stay, heel, come, and a dog who enjoys meeting other people.


For a potential therapy dog, obedience training is vitally important because it shows that the dog and owner can work together. You and your dog must be able to demonstrate that you can communicate and work together as a team.


When you and your dog as working as a pet therapy team, you are responsible for the safety of your dog and the people you visit. Training helps keep dog, owner, and the person being visited, safe.
