Interested in having your dog be a Therapy Dog? A therapy dog provides comfort and support to people who may be in hospitals, nursing homes or retirement facilities.

Getting your therapy dog certification is a worthwhile and satisfying goal. This class will help you prepare your dog for certification so you and your dog can improve the lives of others.
