What you'll learn in this unique class:

Therapy dog handler volunteers will be needed to bring a dose of joy and healing to those struggling with workplace stress, loneliness, depression, financial insecurity, and illness. If we ever needed stress relief, it is now as we reopen our society from a year of COVID pain. 

How to Certify Your Pet as Therapy Dog class will motivate the public to take this class offered by your college so they can be part of the healing process.  Have you ever wanted to become a trained therapy dog handler, and have you and your dog certified by a legitimate, recognized agency? 

In this live, fast-paced online class, you will meet practicing therapy dog handlers, bringing joy and happiness to people in various environments and facilities? Our course shows you how to pass the therapy dog handler's written and behavioral tests at the least cost and quickest way. The class provides a detailed understanding of the certifying process, dog training tips and resources, evaluation requirements, and post-class support as you work toward your therapy dog certification. We combine live student questions and answers, lectures, demonstrations, and videos of therapy dog evaluations used by different registering agencies. 

A comprehensive therapy handler resource guide with over 50 valuable website links is included in the course fee. The course is taught by Richard Katz, a nationally recognized therapy dog handler and college educator.
