PLEASE know we do not require a CGC to join nor do we encourage 'Therapy Dog Classes'. We do not charge for Evaluations of your pet, nor do we require you to pay for any 'Therapy Dog or Therapy Dog Skills' classes. IF you are told this PLEASE contact us immediately. Basic obedience, healthy and well socialized pet, very loving disposition absolutely, but please be wary of those who tell you Therapy Dog classes and a CGC are required to have a Therapy Pet. Many pets cannot do this and that is a fact. Many trainers are making a fortune on these 'Therapy Pet Classes / Therapy Pet Skills Classes.' Basic obedience is wonderful IF your pet requires it, many do not. PLEASE never forget not every pet can be a Therapy Pet. Many simply do not have the disposition for it, yes, it IS that simple. We thank you for wanting to help in your community but this can be done without 'forcing' your pet to do something it is not comfortable with. Visiting those in care centers, hospitals, VA Facilities, schools, libraries, etc is an honor. Sharing your well adored, well socialized, healthy, and well-behaved pet can mean the world to someone in a facility that has no family nor friends to visit them. Thank you for your interest. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
Like all other organizations we welcome individuals that share our enthusiasm and wish to become Members. PLEASE read carefully the text in this section if you are interested in joining us in our 25th year of Volunteer Service!
