THERAPY DOG TRAINING

It has been documented how interacting with a dog can lower your blood pressure and in general allow you to feel better. Do you have a dog that provides that feeling not only to yourself but to other people? If so, your dog might make a great therapy dog. Therapy dogs need canine good manners and obedience – such as not barking, not jumping, walking on a loose leash, coming when called, staying, and interacting around folks and medical equipment. We will be working with your dog on the elements needed to take the therapy dog test.

Ages/Grades: Adults
Time(s): 3:30 p.m.
Day(s): Sunday
Place: Dorothy Bramlage Public Library
Cost: None
Date(s): Session 1: July 7–9, Session 2: July 14–16, Session 3: July 21–23, and Session 4: August 11–13
Registration deadline: September 14
