Project on Therapy Dogs

Hello!

I'm doing a final project on therapy dogs.

I'm using TDI's website for some info. Does anyone have others they'd like to recommend? Would anyone here who has a certified TD be willing to let me interview them? We can do it via pm here so you don't have to give me your email address or phone number.

Thanks in advance!

@Tilden - if you don't have the time, I totally understand but I know you have some involvement in TD's so I thought you may have some input

The problem is that TDI national headquarters can be really fussy over things like handler interviews that deal specifically with the organization. I'm not sure why; perhaps there were problems in the past of which I'm unaware, but they want advance notice of interviews and you're supposed to get their approval before mentioning TDI in any interview--and I don't want to risk my dog's certification with a non-officially approved interview. It's entirely possible they would never find out about a school project. Perhaps they wouldn't even care. But if they did find out or did care, I could potentially end up in trouble (or worse, my chapter could). Providing general information about the organization is one thing because that kind of thing is available elsewhere (such as on their website); providing specifics about your experience is another. To give you an idea, we were all just told that we (TDI handlers) should not post any photo of our dogs on social media that shows even so much as signage relating to a TDI visit. In other words, we can't pose our dogs in a front of anything that indicates the name of the facility at which a visit took place, even though the facility itself would have had to request the visit because that's considered a privacy issue too now.

TDI may well be stuck having to enforce such rules in order to keep operating. I'm not blaming the organization. It's just the way things now are.

I could recommend some books that deal with therapy dogs if that would be of any help to your project.

Oh wow, I had no idea. It's okay I actually found enough info (and got an A). Thanks though!
