Therapy/CGC Prep

Not to be confused with service dogs, therapy dogs are used to help comfort those in hospitals, nursing homes, schools, and more. The most important thing about a therapy dog is his behavior: is he friendly with people and other dogs? Does he welcome attention from adults and children? Will he react if someone makes a loud noise? These are all skills your dog will need to be a CGC and/or a therapy dog! Our 6 week prep class will help you polish your dog's skills so you're ready to pass your certification. You can learn more about the AKC's Canine Good Citizen program here.
