Becoming a certified Therapy Dog.

I would love love love love for my RR to become a therapy dog. He is 2 now and I realize it would take a bit more training. He really has the mentality for it and it would be amazing if I could visit hospitals with him. I would love to give back to the community in that kind of way. I essentially lived in a hospital for 3 years when my mother was battling cancer. I know how hard it can be staying there and I know how a dog can brighten even the sickest patients day.

I am in north eastern ohio and I have no clue about where to even start for this. I've been doing some research but if anyone can shed some light on this and point me in the right direction I'd really appreciate it.

most areas have classes for it. therapy dog classes. CGC is esstentially the same stuff only it doesn't allow you to visit. if you find a place that offers CGC you could call them and ask where to go for therapy class.

also...delta pet partners and therapy dog international are the big groups out there that do therapy dog stuff. go to their sites. they often tell you where you can test out at. good luck, its amazing
