Booking a Therapy Dog Assessment and Consultation.
You can meet us or one of our trusted trainers for a therapy dog assessment. This positive and informal session consists of an hour and half, where we will:
Assess your dog’s temperament and well-being for therapy work and ensure that he will be happy and enjoy the therapy environment you will be attending.
Check on your dog’s level of training and confidence and see where any additional skills may be needed.
Enjoy meeting YOU to answer your questions and offer support and assistance where we possibly can.
Help you become fully certified if you are at that stage in your therapy dog training journey.
You need to be working through the Therapy Dog Workshops 1&2 in order to book your session so that you have a thorough understanding of everything involved with setting up your service.
Our criteria for undertaking a therapy dog assessment, is that your dog must have matured through his ‘teenage’ stage, so must be at least 18 months old and have lived with you for 1 year so we can clearly see the bond between you both.
Some people like to check that their puppy or young dog is suitable. This is fine BUT will not constitute a full assessment. As a pre assessment it will likely highlight any training needs, which means you have time to work toward the full assessment. We cannot judge your dog’s temperament for therapy work at such an early age.
Cost is £65.00 for 1.5 hours
