Therapy Dog Training
Our next Therapy Dog Class will begin on
Monday, June 4th. There will be a 6:00 and a 7:30 class.
Classes fill on a first come, first serve basis.
Your spot in class will not be secure until your Registration Form and payment are received.
The Therapy Dog Training Class runs for 7 weeks and is $100.
A Basic Obedience Class, such as the Canine Good Citizen class, is recomended prior to the Therapy Dog Class.
The first 4 weeks of class are held at the Sunnyside Training Facility with a focus on the basic obedience skills required to pass the Therapy Dog test as well as the information you need in order to make your therapy visits rewarding and successful.
Weeks 5 & 6 we take our dogs (with permission from the management) to Polaris Mall where the dogs have a chance to ride in the elevators, walk on tile steps and sit to be petted by a number of people.
Week 7 we are fortunate enough to work with an assisted living facility in Westerville that hosts our “Graduation Party”. This gives you and your dog real life experience in this wonderful facility with people who enjoy the benefits of the Therapy Dogs.
