Therapy Dog Classes

 

Beginner Therapy Dog Class covers all basic foundations that a Therapy K9 Candidate will need to become a confident and reliable therapy dog. It will focus on preparing dogs for the Therapy Dog International (TDI) test Phase I.

Prerequisite: a dog with a friendly, calm temperament. Must have taken a puppy or obedience class at PDS or any other training facility.

 

Advanced Therapy Dog Class covers more advanced concepts that a Therapy K9 Candidate will need to know and demonstrate in the Therapy Dog International (TDI) test Phase II. This class will fine tune the K9 Candidate for their therapy dog career and TDI test.

Prerequisite: successful completion of Beginner Therapy Dog Class.

 

Once your dog passes, you can work as a team visiting hospitals, nursing homes, schools and wherever therapy dogs are needed.
