What Makes a Good Therapy Dog?

Many of the necessities are noted above. By all means, the dog must be social and enjoy greeting and visiting people. They should also enjoy being petted and touched. And, of course, they must be under the handler's control at all times. A basic obedience class is a must. They must be able to function around other dogs. Socialize, socialize!


Getting Involved

There are several wonderful organizations you can register your therapy dog with. It is important to register with an organization as they will provide you with insurance coverage and help you get started. And, of course, they are always there for support. All pet therapy dogs in the Pet Pals program are registered with Therapy Dogs, Inc.

For more information please contact Carole - therapy@highdesertobedienceclub.org.
