Therapy Dog Training
The best medicine always wags its tail!
Ever wonder what it would be like to brighten someone’s day just by sitting with them or to help a child learn something new by just being there. Well, that’s what it’s like when you have a trained dog.
Unlike other service animals therapy dogs offer a ministry of presence. They go to hospitals to cheer up sick children as you see their faces light up. They go to nursing homes and schools anywhere someone just needs a little extra love.
If that sounds rewarding believe me it is, not only for your dog, but for you as well. The gift you give is one that will be remembered long after your visit is over.
Client Review Sarah and Chance
The qualifications for therapy training are a calm nature, a gentle temperament and complete control in all situations. A therapy dog cannot be aggressive with people, children or other dogs. Most importantly, they have to love being petted by anyone, anytime, anyplace.
If your dog passes the requirements for temperament and stability your dog can be used in therapy work. That means you’ll be able to take you dog to places like:
- Nursing Homes
- Doctors Offices
Additionally, you can bring your dog anyplace that someone can use the comfort and extra love. Dogs have helped people with Alzheimer’s, cancer and people recovering from surgery. They have helped children with learning disabilities or autism. Therapy dogs have even been used in dentist offices to help patients that are afraid of the dentist chair.
