Therapy dogs are different than service dogs and emotional support animals. There’s nothing better than the feeling of helping other people. Training your dog as a therapy dog is a wonderful way to give back to your community. You get to bond with your best friend and others are allowed to experience that love and joy.
Typically, therapy dogs remain with their owners for life, so don’t worry about having to give up your best friend as is often the case with service dogs. What is the make-up of a therapy dog? Young, well-socialized, friendly dogs in good health are the best candidates to become therapy dogs. Just begin with that premise.
Training your best friend, no matter what the long-term goals may be is my purview. I am Las Vegas dog trainer Dennis Danskin. Let’s talk about your hopes and dreams for the next 10-15 years.
