So, your dog wants to be a therapy dog?  Well, we’ve got a course for that!  This 6-week course gives dogs and handlers the necessary skills for not only passing the test, but also for working successfully as a therapy dogs team.  The course is taught by Deb, who has been a therapy dog handler since the mid-1990s, has had 6 therapy dog partners over the years, and has directed a large therapy dog certification and training program since 2005.
