What you'll learn in this dog training class:

Want to become a certified therapy dog handler, registered with a nationally recognized agency, bringing joy, smiles, comfort and happiness to people in different types of settings?  

In this 4-hour, adult, non-credit workshop, you will meet a certified therapy dog and handler that will show you how to pass the therapy dog handler written and behavioral tests at the least cost and quickest way.  

Participants receive a list of facilities using therapy dog services in your area, leading certifying agencies, dog training tips and resources, comprehensive explanation of the certifying process, and on-going post-class support.  

We combine group discussions, lecture, demonstrations and videos of therapy dog evaluations used by different registering agencies.  A comprehensive therapy handler resource guide with over 80 valuable website links is included in the course fee.  

Instructor Richard Katz has provided therapy dog services in a variety of settings including UCLA Health System, United Airlines, dependency rehabilitation residents and disaster relief situations. He holds a BS degree from UCLA and a Masters of Arts degree from University of Minnesota. 

No previous experience required other than an interest in becoming a therapy dog handler.  

Upon completion of this workshop, participants will:
  • Have a better understanding of the field of therapy dog service.
  • Understand the process of qualifying their dog to become a therapy handler team either as a volunteer or in a paid position.
  • Receive a comprehensive therapy handler resource guide with over 80 valuable website links.
