What you'll learn in this dog training class:

Anyone who has felt a connection with a pet and experienced that joy of unconditional love, understanding, and acceptance, knows the value of a pet’s companionship. These qualities make animals and particularly dogs, ideal therapeutic visitors for patients in hospitals and other facilities. It's amazing to watch a sick or elderly person's face light up in the presence of a therapy dog! 

In this 1-day, 3-hour class, you'll meet Rudy, a real-life therapy dog and his handler, instructor Richard. You'll learn all about what it takes to become a therapy dog and how you and your dog can determine if you're a good fit for this type of service.  Rudy and Richard will teach you the essentials on how to become certified in the most efficient, fast, and cost-effective way.  

Course includes reviewing a video of a handler team evaluation and a list of local facilities recruiting therapy dogs . 

Note: Please do not bring your dog to class.
