Therapy Dog Material
You may have thought that your lovable, adorable canine would make a good therapy dog. After all, you think he’s great and so would other folks, right?
To see if your dog really is cut out to be a therapy dog, check the following criteria for therapy work:
• Your dog is generally friendly and tolerant of all types of people, young and old.
• Your dog is amiable to being handled and petted by strangers.
• Your dog is well trained and will respond to basic obedience commands.
• Your dog is not skittish or alarmed by sudden noises.
• Your dog adjusts well to new situations and surroundings.
If your dog can meet all the above, then he’ll make a perfect therapy dog. It’s a great way to get involved in the community and put your canine towards the worthwhile cause of helping those in need.
