Social Manners Classes for all dogs:
Adolescent Self Control
I offer two therapy dog programs.
Program 1 is for individuals who want to go visit people in nursing homes and hospitals with their dogs. This program teaches all the skills needed to pass any Therapy Dog Organization's handling and obedience test, I also facilitate the AKC Canine Good Citizen test during this course as well as teaching tricks.
Program 2 is for Therapists that want to use their dogs in their practices for Animal-Assisted Intervention or Play Therapy. I teach the Therapist all the skills they need to be able to use their dog to help their patients as well as teaching their dogs everything included in the first course.
for the Dog
For students that have a busy schedule and would prefer to do a self-paced program, I have online courses available.
