How to Certify Your Pet as an Official Therapy Dog
(Open to Adults and Children, Regardless of Residency)
Saturday, February 27, 2021, 9:00 am to 11:00 am
With COVID-19 immunity in sight, now is the right time to certify you and your dog to become part of the community healing process. In this live, engaging, two-hour online class, you will learn from practicing therapy dog handlers how they bring joy and happiness to people in various environments and facilities—from hospitals to airports, from courtrooms to community policing. This course shows you how to pass the therapy dog handler’s written and behavioral tests at the least cost and quickest way. The class provides a detailed understanding of the certifying process, therapy dog training tips, evaluation requirements, practice tests, and post-class support as you work toward your therapy dog certification. We combine live student questions and answers, lectures, demonstrations, videos of therapy dog evaluations, and a comprehensive therapy handler resource guide with over 50 valuable website links. Richard Katz is a nationally recognized therapy dog handler, teacher, and industry expert.
