I'm having trouble finding therapy dog training classes... i guess people just train on their own and then take the test? I just feel more comfortable having someone who knows what they're doing guiding me through the process. Does that make sense? Anyway, I found someone local but she charges $500 for 6 weeks of private lessons and she does a practice test at the end. The price is steep but maybe it's worth it? Thoughts? Opinions? Suggestions?
