Do you have a dog or cat that is calm and loves to be around people? If so, I offer pet therapy training for you and your pet. A Therapy Pet is a cat, dog, rabbit, guinea pig, etc. that is certified to visit hospitals, assisted living facilities, schools, churches and other places they may be needed. Therapy pets can increase emotional well being, promote healing, and improve the lives of those they visit.
A certified pet therapy dog must have basic dog training (sit, down, stay, come, walking nicely on a leash, look, drop it, leave it, emergency recall). In addition to the basics they will need to learn to greet people of all ages, sex and ethnicity nicely, be comfortable around other dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, etc. They will also need to be comfortable walking around walkers, wheelchairs and all types of activities and noises. I can train you and your pet to become a certified pet therapy team with Pets For Life. I offer group classes and individual training.
