Gotta therapy dog?

Any therapy dogs out there? I work at a nursing home and there is a resident cat that lives there full time. All the residents love him. I've been thinking it would be great to get Jynx involved in therapy work. Where do I begin? How do you become certified, what does the dog have to do, what is my roll, etc.? Anyone have any insight?

That is a good question I have four 5.5 week old puppies and I was thinking about trying to get information for therapy dogs and what has to be done. I went to a VA hospital a few weeks back and they had a dog. I think it would be great to see one of my pups at a nursing home or VA hospital. If anyone does have any info I would like to know too!
