This is a discussion on Therapy Work within the Working Dogs forums, part of the Dog Shows and Performance category; I'd love to do this with Radar, but we don't have any type classes like this in Northwest Arkansas that I can find. No training ...

I have a black lab mix who is training to be a therapy dog. She has an orange vest with patchs on. She hasn't been to nursing homes yet(our trainer is looking in on that)..but she has been to Petsmart and Target for meet & greets. She is really good with that. She passed her CGC test. I dont know if she took the TDI test yet.

We have a golden retreiver puppy who is working up that way. We have an orange bandana for him to wear. But we need one that says therapy dog on it. any ideas where i can get on?

Is anybody here involved with the Delta Society? What's the diff between that and the TDI-dog thing. (Haven't look into the latter yet but will now!)

Delta Society, as a whole, is a bit more strict when testing for therapy dogs. I don't know if that's the right word, but they have more guidelines.

I have a 4.5 year old Rottweiler that is a registered therapy dog through TDInc. He's been at it for about 2 years now, and people love him wherever we go... and vice versa. It's very heartwarming to see how much people enjoy him and how happy they are when he's around. Sometimes I get a little teary eyed, even.

I'm pretty sure that any subsequent dogs I own will all be therapy dogs.

Thank you for putting the link up. I will definitely be checking it out. We bought our lab with the intent of her being our childrens' best friend. However, my desire to have a dog was selfish as well. I wanted to train her for therapy work. My oldest starts prek this year and my other little girl will start soon after. So I thought this would be a rewarding task for myself and our Peanut. She is a very loving soul and docile. I'm very excited to continue training with her and hopefully in a 2 years we will be able to start visiting some of the schools and nursing homes in our area.
